For Bodleian Children’s Books, our Publisher mines the Library’s collections to discover and republish timeless and beautifully illustrated children’s books; forgotten gems that can be introduced to today's readers. It also includes newly commissioned books, with a connection to libraries, reading and books.
Titles are all handsomely produced as attractive gift hardback editions, to be treasured for future generations.
Samuel Fanous, the Bodleian Library’s Publisher, said: ‘Many children’s books from the twentieth century have that magic combination of timeless stories perfectly illustrated with gorgeous art which can fire the imagination, as many of us remember well from our own childhood. We aim to bring these to new audiences and commission new titles with a similar profile for young readers.’
