Meet Birt

November 3, 2016

A lovely commission from our friends at Westonbirt Arboretum. Birt’s Adventures is a 36-page activity booklet aimed at four- to six-year-old visitors to the National Arboretum, which encourages them to see, do and learn more during their visits. We called up our old friend and collaborator Chris Dickason to craft the beautiful illustrations and worked with Westonbirt to create a suite of interactive and challenging activities that would keep kids entertained. (We received thorough and brutally honest feedback from our six-year-old guinea pig, who worked his way through early proofs and scored activities out of 10.) We’re really proud of the finished product and can’t wait to visit the arboretum. Birt’s Adventures will be available from the end of November – for more information, visit
