Saturday 14th October is Bookshop Day 2023, and we know what that means… another gorgeous Books Are My Bag tote! Pre-order now as this is a one-run product – when they’re gone, they’re gone!

This year, the design is by Poonam Mistry, creator of The Midnight Panther and How The Stars Came To Be. She is a freelance illustrator whose style incorporates her love of nature and explores the relationship between pattern, shapes and colour creating beautifully intricate illustrations. Bought up around Indian fabrics, paintings and ornaments, she cites them as a source that heavily influences her work. She has collaborated with Penguin Random House, Tate Publishing, Buster Books, Hachette, and Michael O’Mara Books among many others.

Poonam said: “I am delighted and honoured to have been asked to design this year’s ‘Books Are My Bag’ tote. Bookshops are wonderful and magical places that bring communities together and celebrate stories all around the world. I owe so much to booksellers and bookshops who do an amazing job championing all writers and artists. I hope everyone likes the design of the tote as much as I enjoyed illustrating it.”

The bags are made from 100% cotton canvas. They are long handled shoppers with gusset.
