Our best wishes to our enews subscribers for a great 2014!

Books Illustrated has many projects on the boil and so we are looking forward to another busy and stimulating year promoting Australia’s wonderful Picture Book creators. 

In the first half of the year its the Bologna Book Fair in Italy and the CBCA (Children’s Book Council of Australia)  National conference in May. This conference, held every two years, is a highlight in the world of Australian Childrens’ literature. It seems a way off but booking now can mean savings!

We will continue to have some showroom Open Days during this year where you’ll have the opportunity to meet and chat with creators in a intimate space.  We will also continue to take promotional stands at other festivals and events –eg Clunes ‘Back to Book Town’ and Federation Square Book Market. So no doubt we’ll meet some of you at some of these events!

Our stand at the Fed Square Book Market will be usually on the second Saturday of each month. Watch our featured illustrator demonstrating and see their work projected live on the big screen in the Atrium.
First cab off the rank for 2014 will be well loved author /Illustrator Roland Harvey.


Roland Harvey - our Guest artist at Fed Square, Saturday January 11

Meet Roland between 2pm and 5pm, as he demonstrates his cheeky detailed drawings and his deft water colour technique, and have some books personally signed.
We will be featuring his latest picture books – The Wombats go on Camp and Everything we ever Saw.
