At last the new edition of New Zealand Children's Books in Print is out. This edition has been a labour of love with a new broom sweeping through all its layers; from building the new database to laying out using my new design programme. Fraser Williamson's illustration is still on the cover - it's so contemporary and I now totally identify with it so it's staying. The colour in the background was the Pantone colour of the year for 2010 - called Honeysuckle.
Inside the covers are 120 pages of books for children from birth to secondary school age, written and/or illustrated by New Zealanders. Listings are to the end of 2010 plus some titles out and coming in 2011 - with the month noted so you know when to expect them.
The price is unchanged - NZ$20 and I'm happy to send out orders with an invoice.
