Grayson Perry to design a limited-edition tote bag for the 2015 campaign.
Turner Prize-winning British artist Grayson Perry will be designing the 2015 BOOKS ARE MY BAG tote bag, available exclusively to bookshops. The design will be unveiled in October 2015.
Dame Gail Rebuck, joint chair of the BAMB steering group, said: “After the success of the first two years, the Books Are My Bag campaign is going into its third year gathering momentum, fuelled by the enthusiasm of booksellers, publishers and authors. We are privileged, this year, to have the support of Grayson Perry, one of the best-known and certainly best-loved artists in Britain today, who will design a limited edition bag for the campaign.”
Charlie and Lola illustrator and author to design a special children's BOOKS ARE MY BAG tote for bookshops, as part of the 2015 campaign
Bestselling children’s author and illustrator, Lauren Child, has lent her support to the campaign, and will be designing a new BAMB bag for children featuring her much loved fictional characters, Charlie and Lola.
“I am delighted to be part of the Books Are My Bag campaign, especially on the publication of Charlie and Lola: One Thing; partly because I can never go to a bookshop for just one thing, but more importantly because just one bookshop can inspire a squillion imaginations. I have been lucky enough to receive fantastic support from booksellers during the 15 years of Charlie and Lola, and it’s wonderful that there’s a yearly campaign to celebrate their passion for getting children reading. My local bookshop is Primrose Hill Books, and my nearest children’s bookshop is The Children’s Bookshop, Muswell Hill. Both give excellent advice and have a lovely selection.” - Lauren Child
