This year's London Book Fair was another highlight event for the publishing industry and welcomed exquisite writer/illustrator Lauren Child as the trade fair's first ever "illustrator of the fair".​​

It was my great pleasure to meet Lauren, beacon of authenticity and individuality in the field of illustration. For those (undoubtedly few of you) not familiar with her work, see
Another new initiative first launched at the London Book Fair 2018 was the Illustrator's Gallery, a space for industry professionals to display their work and attract the interest of new collaborators.

Hosted by the Association of Illustrators, the UK trade association for illustration, this bold and exciting new opportunity is bound to gather even more steam in the coming years and attract the attention of publishers worldwide.

Thank you for the volume of interest and your numerous inquiries - I look forward to a host of new projects in the coming year!
