#Edbookfest 201610th June 2016 by Tim Warnes
I have several appearances coming up this summer, beginning with the local schools’ literacy festival, where I’ll be sharing my work as an author-illustrator with bus loads of Year 2 pupils (followed a week later by a whole school event). They’ll be good practice for later in August, when I’ll be appearing for the first time at the Edinburgh International Book Festival! I shall be presenting Mole and the Lumpy-Bumpy-Thing in the Schools Programme (which will also take me to Galashiels as part of the festival’s Booked! outreach event); and sharing some rhino fun with Tracey Corderoy as we present the latest Archie story, NOW!

a bit about us
We studied illustration together at Brighton University, graduating in 1993. Since then we've got married, had a couple of kids, and collectively illustrated over 150 books.
Although we work separately on our own commissions, we constantly refer to each other for advice when we get stuck. For instance, Jane is definitely better at perspective and providing cake, whereas Tim knows how to work the scanner and type an invoice.
We share a studio in rural Dorset, UK near the Jurassic Coast, with cows, rabbits, and badgers for neighbours.
Together we are CHAPMAN AND WARNES (a bit like Batman and Robin, but with less crime fighting and no capes)!
We would love to hear from you:
