Shaun Tan back in Melbourne

After the Award week Shaun Tan did a bit of a tour around Europe before going back to Australia. He went from Stockholm to Hamburg and gave a talk with Andreas Platthaus (Frankfurter Allgemeinen Zeitung) following a screening of ‘The Lost Thing’. It was a good event according to Shaun Tan, “with an enthusiastic audience” and a “long signing afterwards! “.

Shaun Tan also got the chance to visit Carlsen Verlag, his German publisher, and its editor Klaus Humann who showed him around Hamburg.  “It’s interesting that the E.coli problem was in the news right then, just as ash clouds and royal scandals coincided with other parts of my trip! It’s as though European news was following me around”, he says.

Shaun Tan then went on to Saarbrücken where part of his visit was dedicated to a workshop for design students. The students were building an installation based around The Arrival, which is probably being completed about now. You can find more information on the visit in Saarbrücken here:
