We are delighted to announce our Very First Book!

The Sorry Tale of Fox and Bear

By MARGRETE LAMOND and HEATHER VALLANCE
Available 1 August 2017

The Sorry Tale of Fox and Bear is the story of two friends who fall out with one another, and about what happens next. Outrageous, brutal and poignant with a bittersweet ending, it is as passionate and ambiguous as any childhood friendship.

A mash-up of several classical tales, The Sorry Tale of Fox and Bear is told with wit and verve, and is embellished with darkly brooding charcoal illustrations.


Save the Date for our next workshop!

NARRATIVE ILLUSTRATION #1:

VALUE AND EMOTION - HOW TO IMBUE NARRATIVE ILLUSTRATION WITH OOMPH!

We all long to be moved by art, but how do creators imbue images with the magic that makes our hearts quiver? Dirt Lane Press runs occasional workshops that demonstrate how to take an ordinary landscape and invest it with extraordinary narrative clout.

Our next two-day workshop will be held at The Children's Bookshop, Beecroft, NSW on 28 and 29 October 2017.
