Launched in late 2010, this separate imprint specialises in children’s picture books. The emphasis is on quality, adventure, warmth and intrigue and the books feature the work of a number of New Zealand’s finest authors and illustrators.
We have already received a number of awards and shortlistings, and translation rights to well over half the list have been sold for publication overseas.
“David Ling is a publisher of rare integrity, range and innovation and his Duck Creek imprint, launched in 2010, has contributed significantly to the general upswing in New Zealand picture book publishing. Production values are notably high, while his authors and illustrators represent a judicious mix of established names and exciting newcomers. I'm looking forward to more delightful picture books from this experienced and committed publisher.”
