Book Week Merchandise
This stunning 2017 Book Week Merchandise has been designed by the very talented Freya Blackwood (Winner of 2015 Picture Book of the Year – “My Two Blankets”, text: Irena Kobald).
Freya’s work has garnered many awards including CBCA Book of the Year in the Picture Book (2015), Early Childhood (2007, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2015) and Younger Reader (2015) categories and the prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal (2010).
I never dared imagine that one day I might be an illustrator, let alone an illustrator asked to create the poster artwork for Book Week. Book Week was the most memorable event of the school year. So illustrating this year’s poster was an amazing and nerve-wracking privilege.
The theme ‘Escape To Everywhere’ immediately made me think of the fantastical. But after consideration, I decided to take my love of drawing people doing everyday things and show them escaping their ordinary lives to a parallel place of wonder.
