The Super Cute Book of Kawaii Update

The Super Cute Book of Kawaii was officially published yesterday so you can now buy it from shops (in the UK) and online (everywhere!). There’s also a chance to win a copy, plus I’ve made some bookmarks.

Yesterday was amazing, with so many lovely comments about the book and cute photos of the contributors with their copies. I even posted a rare selfie! Make sure to follow @sckawaii on Instagram for more updates over the coming weeks. If you haven’t bought a copy yet, here’s all the buying links for shops in the UK and internationally.

The Super Cute Book of Kawaii bookmarks

Free bookmark with signed copies!

I designed some cute bookmarks, which are free with all signed books and signed bookplates from my shop. I’ll personalise it with your name and a doodle too. The bookplates are to stick inside a copy you bought elsewhere as I know shipping is expensive outside the UK.

If you can’t afford the book right now, maybe you can win one! We’ve got 2 copies up for grabs at Super Cute Kawaii, plus bookmarks, badges and other surprises.

Thanks so much to everyone who bought a copy or left a nice comment. I hope you love the book!
