juniors_fox_mintbook_featured1

Australian brand Laikonik have produced this beautiful “Once-A-Year” Book for years now. Their latest edition features gorgeous, letter pressed illustrations by Laura Blythman and is set up to chronicle your child’s life from birth to adulthood.

Each year, from age 0 through to 18, affix one photo on the front and document milestones from that year on the back. Simply trim a standard 6×4 inch photo on any side to create a square OR print square-form photos straight from your phone or Instagram !
Using a clever concertina design the book is designed to stand and display or fold and store in the included wooden keepsake box. Plus, create a journal of the things kids say in the companion Chatter Book.

A great one for years to come!

GEORGINA AND DAD THE DRAGON

Georgina and Dad the Dragon - Juniors Design Blog

We haven’t shared a great local book with you in ages – so its with great pleasure that we introduce Georgina and her Dad, the dragon!

Australian based author; Katrien Pickles got thinking of how few books showed Fathers or male carers as the rough and tumble main characters and she decided to set about changing that. Joining forces with illustrator Lauren Merrick, she has created “Georgina and Dad the Dragon”.

“Georgina had fought many great battles as the greatest knight in all the land. But her most dangerous battle of all was against Dad the Dragon. Will Georgina be able to stop Dad the Dragon from gobbling up chickens and burping fireballs on her village?”

We think its a beautiful addition to any bookshelf and are happy to say that we have 3 to giveaway !
All details below and in the mean time the book can be purchased directly here.
