words & pictures

Words, and pictures: two little words that, together, mean a lot. A high-quality imprint for young children, words & pictures was started in 2012.

The imprint encapsulates three main focuses:

  • Imagination – because opening a book should also open a child’s own imagination to possibilities;
  • Innovation – because children should be encouraged to create, not imitate;
  • Inspiration – because books should make children want more: more books, more information, more of life itself.

Good books inspire. words & pictures represents a powerful and positive opportunity to open children’s minds to a world of discovery.
