In the past 12 months two incredibly inspirational members of the Templar Publishing team were diagnosed with breast cancer. Both of these incredible women are responding well to treatment so in recognition of their recovery we have decided to raise money for Breast Cancer Care (you can visit the BCC website here to find out more about this fabulous charity).
As publishers of an array of award-winning children’s books, we decided what better way to raise some funds in a creative and exciting way but to call on volunteers from a wealth of illustrative contacts.
We decided that blank paper watches (c/o Suck UK) would be a great platform to showcase the amazing talent of some of the countries most well loved illustrators – The elaborately designed watches will be auctioned on-line to help us achieve our goal of raising £5000

‘It has been a huge privilege to have co-ordinated the Paper Watch Project – I have been constantly surprised by the level of creativity, care and craftsmanship the PWP illustrators have put into their creations and we can’t wait to share them with everyone. It has been a great opportunity to work with some of my all time favourite illustrators, whilst discovering many many new ones. Such an amazing cause and in honour of two of the most inspirational women I have ever had the luck to work with.’
