Join Bubbles and friends on a joyous adventure this summer at Ivanhoe Library and Cultural Hub!

Bubbles: On an Island Somewhere South of Paris is the soon-to-be-published book by local artist Don Walters and poet Joe Pascoe. At Loft 275, visitors can view original Bubbles artworks and retrospective poems.

Colourful, playful and moving, there is something for everyone in the shimmering, unique world created by the duo. Bubbles is an every-person character who finds life a little bewildering, but still has wonder and hope.

Visit Bubbles until 16 January 2022 at Ivanhoe Library and Cultural Hub. You can also read a digital version of the book here.
