Templar extends Jane Foster range

Templar extends Jane Foster range

Bonnier Publishing imprint Templar has signed five new books by textile artist and illustrator Jane Foster.

Foster, whose first books for children ABC and 123 were published by Templar in May, has designed three new early-years titles (Black and White, Colours and First Words) and two activity books (Brown Bear Colour Book and Stripy Tiger Pattern Book).

Templar acquired the world rights to all titles from Claudia Kennerley at Palazzo editions and will publish Black and White, Colours and First Words in January 2016. The activity books will be released in March 2016.

Foster is based in Totnes, Devon, where she has her own design, screen print and sewing studio. Her ceramics and homeware range is sold in John Lewis and Urban Outfitters.
