Shaun Tan in Münich

If you’d like to immerse yourself in the world of Shaun Tan – now you have the chance!

The International Youth Library in Münich is opening an exhibition of the Australian illustrator and writer Shaun Tan (nominated to the Astrid Lindgen Memorial Award 2010) on 15th of September.

Shaun Tan is a rising star in the world of illustration and he’s won numerous awards in the past couple of years, for example last year’s Deutsche Jugendliteraturpreis for the book Tales from Outer Suburbia.

The exhibition will present a representative selection of original illustrations, with focus on Shaun Tan’s picture books and graphic novels. Furthermore, the visitors will get an impression of his work process, since sketches and preperatory work also will be on display. If you can’t make it to Münich, the Award Office recommends picking up the exhibition catalogue which will be produced.
