Margaret Hamilton

Margaret Hamilton has been involved in children’s books all her working life – as children’s librarian, bookseller and publisher. Award-winning Margaret Hamilton Books specialised in picture books, developing an international reputation. Pinerolo, the Children’s Book Cottage in Blackheath displays Margaret’s collection of original artwork from picture books and a large library – the only establishment of its kind in NSW and is a mecca for anyone interested in picture books. Pinerolo’s program of Illustrators in Residence is ongoing, and courses on creating picture books have been running for eleven years.
