Grayson Perry will design a collector’s edition tote bag for this year’s Books Are My Bag (BAMB) campaign.
The Turner Prize-winning British artist’s design will be revealed at the BAMB launch on 8th October, which is also “Super Thursday”, the day on which a large number of publishers’ key titles are published ahead of the Christmas period.
The nationwide programme of in-store events, Big Bookshop Parties, returns on 10th October.
Dame Gail Rebuck, joint chair of the BAMB steering group, said: “After the success of the first two years, the Books Are My Bag campaign is going into its third year gathering momentum, fuelled by the enthusiasm of booksellers, publishers and authors. We are privileged, this year, to have the support of Grayson Perry, one of the best-known and certainly best-loved artists in Britain today, who will design a limited edition bag for the campaign.”
