Gillian McClure sets up publishing company
March 09, 2011
Picture book author and illustrator Gillian McClure has launched her own publishing company, Plaister Press.
Gillian, whose books have previously been published by Random House and Bloomsbury, hopes to expand her company to include work by other authors and illustrators. She plans to publish one new title each year, using local printers and supporting independent booksellers.
Gillian has already republished one of her earlier titles, Selkie, and will publish a new book, The Little White Sprite, this month. She said: “Now I have the happy prospect of years of illustrating ahead of me, working at my own pace, without hiatus and delay which I find so destructive to the process of creating a book.”
