Old Barn Books approached us earlier in the year for some recycled seed packets to promote their new children’s book Bee and Me, illustrated and written by Alison Jay. We were more than happy to oblige! The book is a children’s story about friendship and the sad plight of our bees – a plight which is close to our hearts.
Fittingly, they chose to have Sunflower seeds in the packet – which bees absolutely love! The design was printed onto recycled seed packets in a lovely shade of pale mustardy yellow, each packet measuring 9 x 12 cm.
Old Barn Books are offering readers of this blog a discount on Bee and Me – quote code BEE on their website to receive a copy for £8.00 instead of the usual £10.99 PLUS a packet of seeds!
The company is an independent publisher of illustrated books for children and also gift books aimed at the adult market. Their office is actually in a barn in the woods! They published their first book, Bluebell Bears, in April 2015 and have since published board books, picture books and novelty books.
Round of applause for them too as they have reached the finals of the British Book Design and Production Awards 2016 in the Children’s Trade 0 to 8 Years category – with not one but two books! Hurrah for them!
If you would like us to provide you with seed packets for your new product launch, please do get in touch!
