A Lovely Way to Say Hello

More babies are born in late September and early October in England and Wales than at any other time of the year: nearly 2,000 a day. If you need a gift to greet one of these new arrivals, we’re offering a book and card with illustrations by well-known artists.

Parenting is a rewarding and daunting task. As soon as you bring your baby home, life becomes a blur of blissful surprises and sleepless nights. Before you know it, the first step and the first word nestle themselves in somewhere between the first illness and the first tantrum.

Baby Book and Baby Card

To reflect both the cheerful and chaotic sides of raising children, we have the perfect gift. With every purchase of our Kate Greenaway Baby Book in October, we are offering a free website-exclusive baby card featuring Heath Robinson’s ingenious solution to restless nights.

Though their art styles are like day and night, both these artists have had an equally large impact on British culture. Kate Greenway’s illustrations revolutionized children’s publishing during the second half of the 19th century and Heath Robinson’s contraption pictures transformed the humour of the 20th.

By bringing these two artists together, we hope this gift will give parents a good chuckle and a beautiful place to treasure every memory with their brand new baby.
