Inspiring Young Readers
An Interview with Veronica Lamond
The Letterpress Project has asked authors and illustrators to think about what has inspired them as artists, what their favourite books are and how they relate to their audience - we've also asked them if they themselves are book collectors.
We are delighted to present an exclusive interview with the children's author and illustrator, Veronica Lamond. Veronica is the author, illustrator and publisher of the well-loved and highly successful Landy book series.
Her seven books are based on the loveable, animated characters of Landy, (a 1956 Series 1 Land Rover) and his friend Fender (a 1999 Defender). Together with their energetic young owners, Jack and Dan, Veronica introduces young children to diverse, real life activities.
The books have won the hearts of thousands of children and adults from around the world with their charming illustrations and warm-hearted, engaging stories.
You can find out lots more about Veronica on her website which can be accessed on this link:
