Illustrators' contribution to children's books

From Standing Room Only, 1:45 pm on 3 April 2022

An exhibition to celebrate those who put pictures to words for one of our leading children's book publishers, is about to open in Whanganui.

It's two years since the Lockett Gallery, an arm of Paige's Book Gallery, opened as the country's only gallery for illustrators.

For its next show Lockett is teaming up with Gecko Press, a Wellington based publisher of international children's books, to highlight the work of the illustrators.  

Lynn Freeman talks to the joint curators of Gecko Press the Exhibition, Lesley Stead from Paige's Book Gallery and Rachel Lawson from Gecko Press.

Gecko Press the exhibition is on this month at Whanganui's Lockett Gallery.
