BOOKS ARE MY BAG (BAMB) is a nationwide campaign run by the Booksellers Association to celebrate bookshops across the UK. At the centre of the campaign is the iconic BAMB tote bag. Since the campaign launched, over a million people have worn a Books Are My Bag tote to show their love for their local bookshop.
You can now PRE-ORDER this year’s stunning limited edition bag which has been illustrated by Welsh author/illustrator, Jackie Morris.
An internationally best-selling illustrator, artist and author of over forty books, Jackie Morris has collaborated with Ted Hughes, Robin Hobb and Robert Macfarlane among others. In 2017 she won a Books Are My Bag Readers Award in the Beautiful Book category for her illustrations of The Lost Words with Robert Macfarlane. Her upcoming titles include Feather, Leaf Bark & Stone (Unbound), The Accordion Books (Unbound), Mrs Noah’s Song, illustrated by James Mayhew (Otter-Barry Books) and Something About a Bear (Otter-Barry Books).
Jackie Morris said: “As a writer I owe my career to booksellers. As a reader I love the individuality of different stores that so beautifully reflect the personalities of the staff. It is a real honour to be invited to design this year’s Books Are My Bag Limited-Edition Bag, to celebrate Bookshop Day, and I hope it gives readers and lovers of books one more reason to visit their favourite bookshops this autumn.”
Emma Bradshaw, Head of Campaigns at the BA, commented: “We are so excited to team up with Jackie Morris for this year’s Limited-Edition Bag. Jackie is one of the most popular authors and illustrators among booksellers, and her tender, heart-warming design for this year’s bag is just delightful. We can’t wait to see it stocked in bookshops on Bookshop Day!”
*The bags will be available to collect/posted on Bookshop Day, which takes place on Saturday 8 October.
