Nail all your Xmas presents at once.
One copy of Annual 2
One tea towel
Annual is back and stuffed to the gunwales with more excellent writing and illustration from across Aotearoa. There are craft projects (who hasn't wanted to make a balloon letterbox or knit their own digestive system?), a new boardgame, and a recipe for cosmic pancakes as well.
It's a book to read again and again and the perfect gift for a family.
Common Household Biscuits & Slices of New Zealand Tea Towel:
100 percent Indian cotton, screen printed in Shelly Bay, Wellington, using water-based ink.
(Please note: the tea towels are printed by hand by an actual person. This means each run is different, so there may be colour variations.)

“Children and adults alike will open it and their mouths will drop and then they’ll keep it forever and love it to pieces”.
