About Red Paper Kite
Red Paper Kite is a new, independent boutique publisher of picture books.
Based in Perth, it was established in 2018 by French illustrator Sandra van Doorn who, as a child, used to scribble in all her schoolbooks. It got her into much trouble, but she firmly argued it was supposed to be that way.
Today it can be that way: by adding colour-in pages to all their stories Red Paper Kite gives everyone space (and permission) to draw and scribble in books, inspiring children and grown-ups alike to be the illustrator and the author.
Our philosophy is simple; creating quality picture books with an art flair, filled with quirky fun stories for young and old - all the while making sure our books reflect the world we live in.
At the core of everything we do at Red Paper Kite is a commitment to celebrate talented illustrators and authors from around the world, and a strong respect for the people we work with. We believe cultural diversity helps create richer narratives.
