INTRODUCING MAY GIBBS BY ECOLOGY May Gibbs is one of Australia’s best loved classic childrens’ book illustrators and authors. May’s deep love and understanding of the Australian bush was portrayed in her work, engendering in children her own love of nature. She based her characters and scenery on the plants found in the bushland of Bunbury Western Australia, where she played as a child. The Gumnut Babies, her classic book about Australian bush fairies, was first published in 1916 and became an instant success. Soon after Gum Blossom Babies, Flannel Flowers, Wattle Babies and Boronia Babies were published. In 1918 she released her most

famous work Snugglepot & Cuddlepie, followed by Little Ragged Blossom in 1920 and Little Obelia in 1921. Harper Collins’ current release entitled The Complete Adventures of Snugglepot & Cuddlepie features a compendium of three of May’s famous stories: The Complete Adventures of Snugglepot & Cuddlepie, Little Ragged Blossom and Little Obelia. This Snugglepot & Cuddlepie collection features imagery specific to these two most well-known characters and their friends created by May Gibbs and will be launched in conjuction with the 100 year anniversary of this iconic book.


ABOUT MAY GIBBS May Gibbs is a treasured Australian illustrator and author. She has captured the imaginations of Australians for over a century with her bushland folklore and magical stories. As the only daughter to a cartoonist, May Gibbs joked that she could draw before she could walk. It wasn’t long until Gibbs received her first art award, winning first prize at the age of 15 for her exceptional Botanical Illustrations in the 1982 Perth Wildflower Competition. May Gibbs moved between London and Australia, honing her artistic abilities and developing her signature line work style. However, it wasn’t until 1913 that the Gumnut Babies were first imagined, after Gibbs was commissioned to illustrate for

the Sydney Mail. At the onset of World War 1, the cherub faced characters appeared on Australian postcards and by 1918 May Gibbs became a household name with the release of the iconic Tales of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie. May Gibbs left a beautiful legacy upon her passing in 1969, by leaving the copyright for all her work to The Northcott Society and Cerebral Palsy Alliance, ensuring continued support to these foundations through royalties from the sales of the May Gibbs Storybooks. Through her initiative, proceeds from the sale of May Gibbs products have supported thousands of Australian children with disabilities and their families.


CELEBRATING SNUGGLEPOT & CUDDLEPIE Generations of Australians have grown up with the Adventures of Snugglepot & Cuddlepie, with the cherub faced gumnut babies a reminiscent illustration of their own childhoods. First published in 1918, The Adventures of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie follow the magical gumnut babies and their exciting journeys as they meet new friends and navigate their troubles with the scary, banksia men. The magical fairyland that the gumnut babies explore evokes a sentimental connection with readers through the representation of native Australian ora and scenery.

Ecology is excited to collaborate with the iconic Adventures of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie to create a collection of uniquely Australian lifestyle products as the iconic book approaches its 100 Year Anniverary. The nostalgic range features the much loved gumnut babies coupled with the distinctive quality and style of the Ecology Brand. The May Gibbs by Ecology capsule collection pulls on heart strings as we remember our childhoods with the May Gibbs’ stories and invite the timeless gumnut babies into our homes once again.
