Angus Mackinnon designed bookplate

Modern, quirky and demanding to be downloaded & printed is our final bookplate for 2015 (stunning bookmarks still to come!)

The everso generous picture book illustrator Gus Mackinnon has hand drawn and coloured this bookplate exclusively for International Book Giving Day.

I just LOVE its energy, quirkiness and the sense of fun that leaps from those characters on that ever so long bike. Isn’t it brilliant?!

Angus Mackinnon is one half of the Superhairies, a couple of uncommonly hairy individuals who fight boredom by creating imaginative children’s books.

You have seen The Weasel Puffin Unicorn Baboon Pig Lobster Race and Dog On Stilts (Digital Leaf) haven’t you?!

On your marks, get set … GO!!! Get these into the books you are gifting on International Book Giving Day 2015. #giveabook

Now’s the time to get planning …. which books will these be going into & where will you be leaving them? How are you going to help make 14th February a wonderfully bookish affair?

I LOVE the idea of sneaking into waiting rooms and leaving for them for unsuspecting children to discover and enjoy when they most need them.

Coming up;

  • a fabulous quirky book plate from one of my favourite picture books creators of last year
