Every Story has a beginning.
Ours starts here.
Little White Bird Press is a small, independent publishing business. We publish original, artistic books for children that nudge the limits of human consciousness.
Books that inspire dreams. Dreams that inspire life.
At Little White Bird Press, we are taking a holistic, collaborative approach to producing a book, recognising that all the artists in the creative process - author, illustrator, book designer, publisher - are equal, and have equal contribution to the end outcome.
It is this unique collaborative process that led to the creation of our first book, The Promise, which has gone on to be shortlisted for Best Designed Children's Fiction Book at the Australian Book Design Awards 2022. The Promise is not just a book, it is a unique visual, textual and intellectual experience.
Authors and Illustrators
Richard Dove is a husband, father, poet and author. His widely celebrated picture book, Us Karen, was commended by Prime Minister Julia Gillard, who helped launch this book from her Canberra office. After a long career building the relationship between police and culturally diverse communities, Richard is now enjoying his dream job of coordinating the settlement of refugees in Melbourne's west - and writing stories.
Kyoko Imazu is a Melbourne-based artist working with a range of mediums such as printmaking, paper cut, puppetry and installation, bookbinding and ceramics. She likes to imagine the stories of our often overlooked neighbours, like the weeds, insects and pebbles that fill our everyday lives, to try to make sense of the world we live in, and imagine the worlds we cannot see with our own eyes.
