1993 Growing at Gasworks
The move in 1993 to Gasworks Arts Park in Albert Park to the historic two- storey Gatehouse building enabled us to establish a specialist children’s bookshop downstairs and a gallery for illustration and Ann James’s open studio, upstairs.
For 16 years Books Illustrated was involved in Gasworks Arts events and took advantage of integrating children’s literature and illustration into their community-based arts programs with our own education programs, seminars and workshops developing audiences for and beyond the children’s literature community. Exhibitions extended to regional galleries and oversea, promoting Australian picture books and creators in South Korea, Japan, Taiwan and China.
