wandering window displays in sydney…
Posted in my heart wanders, sydney May 3rd, 2011 by pia

Over the next few weeks I’ll be creating some special window displays in bookstores and boutiques across the city, in celebration of the release of My Heart Wanders. I’m thrilled that these gorgeous stores have all been so enthusiastic about the idea of a ‘wandering window display’, inviting me to come and play in their windows. While in Melbourne last weekend I created two window displays which I’ll show photos of soon, but seeing them in real life is always better, so if you live in Melbourne, please head to Coventry Bookstore in South Melbourne, and Avenue Bookstore in Albert Park.  If you live in Sydney, please keep your eyes on the shop windows you see here in this post, and in a couple of weeks time (when I catch my breath!) I’ll show you lots of photos of the making of each display…

Thank you Shearer’s for making My Heart Wanders one of your books of the month!

Also I have added more events to the blog sidebar on the right, including one at newspaper taxi in newtown, one at little paper lane in mona vale, and a special event at Velluto’s – all of which are guaranteed to be lots of fun, I do hope you can join us. Please click on the links for more details.

I have two windows to create tomorrow (hmm, which ones do you think? I’ll reveal locations on twitter as well as snapshots as I work), so I will have to keep this post short & sweet. I will try not to keep you in suspense of how my book launch went on Friday night, as well as the fabulous fun I had in Melbourne over the weekend, for too long. But I will be off to Brisbane on Thursday to help Kylie finish the prep for Saturday’s launch, so I will most likely not get to show + tell you all the details of all the events until next week. I hope you can wait ’til then.

A huge thank you to everyone who has been coming out to say hi, joining in the fun to help celebrate the release of My Heart Wanders here in Australia. It’s a wonderful welcome back to my home land, I couldn’t have wanted for more – you are beautiful,  merci beaucoup mes amis.

    Loving these window displays and absolutely loving your book! It is such a beautiful story with such honest emotion. I can’t wait to meet you again at Little Paper Lane later this month. Good luck with the rest of your launch tour!

    Gorgeous Pia,
    I have followed your beautiful blog of whimsy and delight for a long time now, it never fails to brighten my spirits even on the gloomiest of days.
    Your new book is truly wonderful, every page is a delight.

    Congrats on the book Pia, whilst I am yet to read I did stumble across your window display at Coventry Bookstore this morning. I thought it was so beautiful that I posted about it on my blog http://activatedspace.blogspot.com/2011/05/my-heart-wanders.html

    Looks like a wonderful tour – lots of beautiful shops and a beautiful book. If you ever want to come to the states, we would love to have something for you at our store in Tucson. We sell your other books- but haven’t gotten this one yet- we must, we must! Thank you for your wonderful blog!

    Hi pia,

    I was so dissapointed that I wasn’t organised enough to make it to your launch at ariel but i will see you at newspaper taxi!

    Also the girls at gaffa have very kindly given me another week for my pop up shop so if you have a spare two seconds between all the exiting windows then you should drop by!

    Wow! All these little places look so great and the sort of place you could get lost in for hours just in a corner or something. I have a serious lack of that where I live. I look forward to reading your book!! Amber xx
