Pinerolo – an Italian word meaning ‘place of pines’ – is the home for children’s books in New South Wales at Blackheath in the beautiful Blue Mountains. Pinerolo the Children’s Book Cottage promotes Australian picture books and their creators, educates children and adults about picture books, provides a venue for the exhibition of original artwork from picture books and brings people interested in picture books together in an inspiring environment.

Copyright Agency Cultural Fund was also a proud supporter of the hugely successful Illustrators in Residence program in 2012.
