Spotted in the House

It's been a bumper month for exciting advances!

The Wilful Eye (Tales from the Tower Volume One)* Isobelle Carmody and Nan McNab (eds)

The photo really doesn't do justice to the beauty of these books. There are matt finishes, and special gold PMS colours, and there is a DOG WEARING GLASSES.

And all five of these books were written by women.

Today is International Women's Day, so we'd just like to take a moment to celebrate the many wonderful women in publishing - authors, publishers, editors, designers, publicists, marketing, sales, proofreaders, typesetters and printers, just for a start.

It is a daily pleasure to come to work in the House of Onion, chockful as it is with talented, brave, kind, visionary, committed, bright and funny women.

* And these three were designed by Zoe Sadokierski who is a woman in the habit of making us look good. Thank you, Zoe!

Ooo wow, thanks heaps, Onions! Couldn't have done it without you.

I feel like the odd one out since all the other women on that list are absolute beeping LEGENDS, but I'm not complaining.
