Watching so many international publishers pulling out of NZ has been hard because of all the talented and experienced people we know who work for those companies.

Now that we are a couple of months further on, it is great to see so many of these good people staying in the game. What a wonderful industry we all work in! Opportunities are up for grabs with old and new businesses stepping forward to create what we believe will be a vibrant future. We are really looking forward to working with you all again.

This matches nicely with these older titles we have recently redesigned as new editions. There are some goodies here.

Did you hear about the Arts Foundation Award that Gavin Bishop won? What an honour, with huge congratulations from us. The Mallinson Rendel Illustrators Award comes with $10,000, which is a wonderful prize.

Our next step forward is going to be in producing Apps or both publishing and commercial clients. The interactivity is just awesome and creates a whole new experience. Just watch this space. Add talent with a positive attitude and things will move forward.
