Hello! from Australia exhibition at the Bologna Book Fair April 3 to 6, 2017
We are delighted to be able to attend the 2017 Bologna Children's Book Fair and present the Hello! from Australia promotional exhibition on the collective Australian stand.
Seventeen images as giclee prints on paper and canvas, and over 80 books, submitted by 26 publishers will be displayed - we trust it will be visually enticing, inspiring and irrestistible!
We look forward to sharing from the fair ... 
ANZAC Illustrated

There are many wonderful Australian picture books that have been created over the last couple of years to focus not only on the anniversary of ANZAC, but on war in particular. And there are books for all ages. We don't want to glorify this subject but do believe it's an important theme that needs to be explored for the past, the present and the future. 
We've created a list of books we have in stock which can be downloaded from the home page of our website. Many are signed by the illustrators and some by the authors also.
10% discount is offered to school and educational institutions.

Illustration Inspiration

In March, we were so pleased to have been invited to attend the Melbourne opening of Jeannie Baker's exhibition of her illustrations for her latest picture book, Circle.

As usual with Jeannie's work, the subject matter for her book is researched and presented with amazing accuracy and detail. The story follows the 11,000 kilometre migration of the Bar-tailed Godwit (Limosa lapponica baueri). It is the longest unbroken migration of any animal - travelling from Australia through Southeast Asia to its Alaskan breeding grounds and then back to Australia.
Jeannie has  become so well-known, both in Australia and internationally, for her unique 3-dimensional illustration technique. Jeannie's body of work has resulted in her nomination this year for the prestigeous international Hans Christian Andersen Award.

This is an exhibition that is well worth experiencing!
At Domain House at The Royal Botanic Gardens until May 14

Signed copies of Circle are available - order here
