Bodleian Libraries Logo (GalleyCat)Bodleian Library Publishing plans to establish the Bodleian Children’s Books imprint.

According to Shelf Awareness, the mission behind this venture is to re-publish both “forgotten gems” and “beautifully illustrated titles.” The executives intend to release at least two books per season.

The Bookseller reports that the first two titles that will come out from this venture are Penguin’s Way and Whale’s Way. Author Johanna Johnston and artist Leonard Weisgard worked on these projects together. Both books were originally published in the 1960’s.
