Five minutes with Owl and Dog Playbooks

As book fanatics with young kids, we were blown away by the originality of Owl and Dog Playbooks. We were compelled to get in touch to tell them how brilliant they are, which resulted in us proudly becoming a stockist and being lucky enough to interview founders Claudio Ripol and Yeonju Yang. 

A coffee-table book for the inquisitive

For us, kids’ books should spark the imaginations of all ages and Smallprint champions books we love as adults, whether it is through their imagery, words, concept or content. This marvellous Compendium of wonders ticks all those boxes which makes my job a lot easier, phew.

NEW THIS WEEK...

It is always exciting to check out new books and this week we introduce five new additions to the shop.  Ranging from a brilliant, feel-good story book to a DIY pop-up book for creative kids, we've got a few new additions that will become firm favourites in no time.  Fun, stimulating, interactive and of course incredibly beautiful!

INTRODUCING - AUTHOR MARK LEMON

Being a small, family-run business ourselves we appreciate the fresh shoots of creativity from someone striving out on their own.  Mark Lemon had a vision for his own series of picture books and he took the bull by the horns and self-published under the name Lemon Drop Books. Here we catch up with him...

Papa Pukka - Reading the shit out of life

I don't have the patience to teach my toddler to cook. I don't know what she should wear or how girls' hair works. I'm a bit slapdash with toilet training and concede the Battle of the Evening Toothbrushing the moment she's got more than four gnashers with the faintest splash of paste on them. But I take story-time very seriously...

Wonder & Hur-Rah

In the past twelve months we have been left aghast at the serious talent in children's illustration. Rarely more so than this week, when we took delivery of Wonder & Rah's awesome print collection.  Wonder & Rah first came to our attention on Instagram, it was clear we simply HAD to have the range on Smallprint...

Small talk with Aino-Maija Metsola

We are huge fans of illustrator Aino-Maija Metsola's children's books 'Counting' and 'Colours'. We recently added her latest 'Traffic Jam' and 'Animal Parade' puzzle books to the shop, to celebrate we asked her to spare us 5 minutes and have a small chat about her life and work.  Read it here...

Spring Watch - Books for the Great Outdoors

Regardless of the changeable weather, there is no denying that Spring is making an appearance with the clocks going forward and the flowers tentatively showing their faces. To celebrate spring and our crazy love of illustration, we thought we would focus this post on books featuring our favourite flowers, gardens, nature and the outdoors...

World Book Day // Our New Classics

Here at Smallprint we love the classics: we made wedding bunting from pages of Winnie The Pooh, and you can probably guess the inspiration behind our daughter’s middle name, Beatrix, but our mission is also to find brilliant books which aren’t part of the mainstream but will be loved by whoever owns them

Read to Me // Our Top 5 for Mother's Day

Next Sunday is Mother's Day and in addition to a traditional bunch of flowers and a lie-in we are recommending our top choice of special books, perfect when paired with a sentimental note about sharing time together.  The beauty of our collection is that it inspires adults and kids alike...
