A very happy 30th Anniversary to Barefoot Books

We want to take this opportunity to wish Barefoot Books a very happy 30th Anniversary, they’ve come a long way since they started their small home-based business in England in 1992. Since the beginning, they’ve wanted to create visually captivating books that celebrate diversity, spark curiosity and capture children’s imaginations.

They are kicking off the celebrations with a two-week long exhibition entitled Barefoot Books: 30 Years, 30 Artists at the Umbrella Arts Centre in Concord MA from September 8th to 25th.

We are delighted to share that Illo Artist Inés De Antuñano Riveroll has been selected as one of the 30 incredibly talented artists to be featured in their exhibition, with four of Inés' illustrations from Dumpling Day, they'll be on display as limited-edition prints. They are including the cover as featured here, along with the neighbourhood spread and picnic in the Park (as seen here also).

Dumpling Day is rhyming celebration of the World's most universal foods! Reader's follow ten diverse families as they cook dumplings inside their homes. If you have any questions or a specific project in mind, please do get in touch: [email protected]
