“Work is a bit like Brussels sprouts”

“People say “are you Shaun Tan? I already know the books.” And that really surprises me.”

You can´t miss blogger Bookwitch’s interview with Shaun Tan, about his work as an illustrator, receiving the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award and on how to develop new ideas for art work. The interview was made at the Edinburgh Book Festival, and is published here.

Next week Shaun Tan´s awarded the Swedish Peter Pan Prize for his book The arrival. The award is instituted by the Swedish section of IBBY (International Board on Books for Young People) and the Göteborg Book Fair, and will be presented at the book fair on Thursday September 22nd. The award ceremony will be followed by a debate about the fascinating pictorial worlds of Shaun Tan. Ulla Rhedin, member of the Astrid Lindgrens Memorial Award jury, and Mats Kempe, journalist and member of the Swedish IBBY section, will participate in this program.
