Afterpay It! Afterpay It!

Olive at the Market- Limited Edition Hardcover Book


This is Olive

She loves:

made-from-scratch meals

busy shelves with cheerful displays

hard-working clothes

collecting and re-using fancy packaging

good books and excellent words

setting a table for friends

decorating with nature.

Olive isn’t based on any one real-life person. The clue is in her name.

She is a harvest of good traits from a vast grove of parents, grandparents, friends, aunts, teachers, colleagues, homemakers, shopkeepers and book characters.

She is competent, conscientious and creative.

An all-ages storybook made for pure delight.

Crafted entirely in Australia with an heirloom spirit, Olive at the Market makes an enchanting gift to be enjoyed equally by discerning children and grown-up collectors. 

Olive at the Market is a gentle tale in which Olive’s beloved Saturday routine is side-tracked by chance encounters and her own creative momentum, with delightful results.

Created by Bianca Tzatzagos and beautifully illustrated by Inga Campbell.

Each issue comes hand-signed and individually numbered by the author.

Proudly and entirely produced and printed in Australia. 

Debossed hardcover. Full-colour illustrations throughout.

32 pages. A5 size, 21.8cm h x 15.3cm w (approximately 8.5 h x 6 w in inches).

This is a delicate, vintage-inspired hardback book which will show signs of wear easily. We truly believe that such wear-and-tear is evidence that a collectable is well-loved and should be embraced wholeheartedly.

To best protect the condition of your book, treat it gently and re-wrap it between readings.
