During the year that was 2012, I read what feels a thousand blog posts. Only a handful challenged and changed my perspective on various matters.

“Just How Much is a Picture Book Worth?” by My Little Bookcase was one of those posts. Here’s the beautifully made clip that made me see picture books in a whole new light.

My Little Bookcase has collaborated with 12 of Australia’s finest picture book illustrators to produce a beautiful and unique calendar, An Illustrated Year. It features 12 exclusive illustrations.


I have a copy of An Illustrated Year and trust me, the calendar is gorgeous!
