Love this Puffin Passport (“Perused and pronounced a proper Puffin author”!) from Lizza Aiken’s rich Joan Aiken site. (Click to see it at a decent size there.)

    I stumbled across this post again late last night, and it reminded me of the wonderful annuals Puffin put out for children in the 1970s, featuring authors Joan Aiken and Peter Dickinson just to name a couple of examples. Articles were intelligent,

    II can’t even imagine my own son as a child reading ‘England is a Palimpest!’

    There are also features on Puffin authors at home, including the two examples above, which may have inspired my own later attempts at capturing authors in their geological habitats with my earlier video works, a low budget literary David Attenborough!
