Posted on Apr 4, 2017

ALMA 2017We are happy to announce the German illustrator and picturebook author Wolf Erlbruch as the laureate of Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award 2017! The jury’s motivation:
“Wolf Erlbruch makes existential questions accessible and manageable for readers of all ages. With humour and warmth deeply rooted in humanist ideals, his work presents the universe on our scale. He is a master of the illustrator’s art who honours tradition whilst opening new creative doors. Wolf Erlbruch is a careful and caring visionary.”
