Book Illustrated

In the audience in Bologna, Ann James cheered as Shaun Tan’s name was announced as the winner of this year’s Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award. Together with Ann Haddon, she founded Books Illustrated, an organization which promotes Australian picture books through their book store, showroom and website. They also organize workshops and curate touring exhibitions of contemporary Australian illustration.

Fans of Shaun Tan will be happy to note that Books Illustrated sell both original work as well as exclusive prints by him.
