 Author - June Perkins

Taken by Heidi Den Ronden
Taken by Heidi Den Ronden
  • June  Perkins was an invited presenter at the Tasmanian Poetry Festival, Pacific Wave Festival,  Cairns Writers Festival and to Indigenous writing groups in Canberra and New Zealand. 
  • She has contributed poetry to several Far North Queensland Anthologies, as well as creating the poetry/photography Ripple Project in the Cassowary Coast (2007)

  • June received a mentorship for a picture book manuscript from Australian Society of Authors Emerging Writers and illustrators program, 2015-2016.
  • This is the story of how June found the award winning artist Helene Magisson

Illustrator - Helene Magisson

  • Helene Magisson is a Children’s book illustrator, who graduated from the painting restoration school “Art et Avenir”, Paris (France). 
  • Her numerous trips in Europe and Asia, as well as her childhood spent in Africa inspire and enrich her work. She believes that travelling is a fantastic source of inspiration.  
  • Helene was awarded the first prize in the illustration category at the 2013 CYA conference. She has illustrated her first book, The Velveteen Rabbit by Margery Williams Bianco.
  • She was also trained in the art of medieval illumination, exhibiting her work in Europe and teaching the history and techniques of medieval miniature in primary and high schools, both in France and in India, where she lived for a few years.
  • When Helene settled down in Australia, she decided to start a new career in children’s book illustration.
  • Then in 2015 she commenced work on several more books, including June's project.

    Thank you to . . .

    The inspirational and educative Children's Book Academy for their mentoring on this project 

    The wonderful Writelinks for all they do for writers for children in Brisbane.

    All supporters of this project, past, present and we hope future. Thank you so much for loving this project as much as we do.  It means the world!

     Project Timeline

 Above and below are possible layouts for inside the book.  Designer will work with these suggestions.

 What the final cover could look like with spine.  Will have bar code etc.

Risks and challenges

There is very little risk involved in this project.

The selected local printer has a great track record and and ISO quality certification. They will print offshore if it is cheaper and ensure the company dealt with offshore is excellent with their printing and ethics. They have a beautiful quality product.

The commissioned artists are well known to June and reliable and authentic in their product.

The collaboration process between the illustrator and writer has been successfully trialed and this working relationship has proven its success on the first three illustrations for the book (15 to go) and is a delight for both. A similar relationship is forming with the designer.

The written text has already been professionally edited by an editor with the added bonus of a background in early childhood education and a great experience of working cross culturally.

The printer also has experience with Australia Post and is willing to provide advice and support in regards to the best way to do this.

The printer has the capacity to assist in the production of some of the rewards like posters and journal covers as they are used to supporting independent authors marketing materials.

The workshop option and blackline masters have all been trialed or beta tested with various groups and age groups so people will enjoy them.

Added to that June was taught from a young age to always look for fair bargains by her Papua New Guinean Mum!
