Pictures of the week

Artists and illustrators took advantage of some brief good weather to gather for a picnic in the park, and we've got pictures of the event.

You can also see images from book launches - one for a new novel and another for a book for teenagers - in our pictorial round-up of the last seven days.

Plus, we've got pictures from the first ever Rooftop Book Club hosted by Headline.

Take a closer look at what's been happening in publishing in our pictures of the week.
