Katie Eggington and Cedric the bear
Cedric and Katie were featured in the BBC programme, Paul Martin’s Handmade Revolution in 2012. Katie was one of the winning designers and Cedric was proudly displayed in the V&A Museum shop. On seeing the re-run of the programme in 2016, Lucia approached Katie to discuss creating a series of children’s stories based on Cedric. Anne Bowes (a talented illustrator and jewellery designer) joined the project and has created some delightful illustrations, full of charm and energy.
The Adventures of Cedric the Bear – published by Amsterdam Publishers
Lucia is the writer of all three stories – Cedric at the Museum, Cedric and the Button Bear and Cedric in Paris. She consulted closely with Katie throughout the process to ensure that she captured Cedric’s own unique character because Cedric is a bear like no other!
