New Year's Greetings!
We hope 2015 will be a stimulating and fulfilling year for you all and that our monthly news will keep you posted of the highlights through the year. As well as Books Illustrated activities, we'll share information about other events and interesting happenings in the children's book world in Australia and overseas.

Our focus, as always, will be illustration and art in picture books. We hope you've read the first two articles in our new series, Behind the Studio Door by Leigh Hobbs and by Shaun Tan. This series will continue with fascinating insights into the work of some of Australia's well known picture book illustrators. 
It's a busy start for us this year with preparations to travel to the Bologna Children's Book Fair in March/ April with the Hello! from Australia exhibition, 2015, This project is a partnership with the Australian Publishers Association to promote rights sales of Australian picture books. The print and online catalogue for this exhibition will be launched in February.

Other exhibitions are being prepared for touring - the first include Alison Lester's Are we there yet? to be shown at Parkes (NSW) and ANZAC Illustrated bound for Newcastle (NSW).

Our showroom continues to brim with prints and signed picture books and we welcome visitors by appointment - flexible times available. At this time of year a stroll by the beach is also a good incentive!

Books Illustrated will continue to take a stall at the Federation Square Market on the Second Saturday of each month in 2015. On these days, the Federation Square camera is booked and an illustrator will be invited to attend and demonstrate their illustration techniques. This will often coincide with a newly released picture book - giving visitors the opportunity to have a new book signed personally!
(Please check the Federation Square website or with Books Illustrated for changes that may be necessary to scheduled dates for the year).
