A record number of titles have been chosen to represent the best of Australia’s illustrated books for children for this year’s Hello! From Australia exhibition at this year’s Bologna Children’s Book Fair in Italy.

The illustrated catalogue, launched on-line on February 24, will also be printed and distributed widely at this most important of international Fairs for children’s books, held from March 28 to April 2.
The annual Bologna Children’s Book Fair is the largest international book fair specialising in children’s books and is most prestigious for its particular focus on book illustration.  

The 2015 Hello! from Australia rights exhibition is an initiative of The Australian Publishers Association and Books Illustrated, supported by the Copyright Agency Cultural Fund.

A highlight this year will be the attendance of Australia’s Children’s Laureate and Senior Australian of the Year, Jackie French, who will participate in the Second Children’s Laureate Summit. Nine Laureates from seven countries will be taking part in this initiative, for which Australia has taken a keen and active part in organising.
This year, a record number of 16 Australian authors and illustrators will be attending the fair, many with books and illustrations represented in the exhibition. The esteemed company of creators is Freya Blackwood, Peter Carnarvas, Maree Coote, Paul Dalimore, Gregg Dreise, James Foley, Elaine Forestal, Jackie French, Sally Heinrich, Elizabeth Honey, Ann James, Rebecca Johnston, Jane Jolly, Jedda Robaard, Owen Swan and Judy Watson … They will be guests on the Hello! from Australia’s  Creators’ Table where they will be chatting with visitors and demonstrating each day.
The Australian Stand and exhibition has a new position at the fair this year:
Hall 25 Stand B112.
