While Book Island was still based in New Zealand, it made sense for us to print our picture books in Asia.
Since our arrival in the UK in 2016 we've been printing in Latvia, on high-quality FSC paper sourced from Swedish forests. The FSC ... guarantees that new trees
We clearly remember the day our first giclée print arrived here in Bristol. It was the green illustration from Carll's picture book The Golden Cage. We had always thought the print quality of that book was top notch, but the new print was quite from a different league! The colours was so much more vibrant, the depth of the illustration was impressive and very close to the original painting.

Now, what makes giclée printing so ....
- ink used
- finer spray/resolution
archival -> will never fade....
