IBBY’s fundraising project, Scarves for IBBY, began on 2 September. Ten Hans Christian Andersen Award-winning illustrators – Albertine, Quentin Blake, Robert Ingpen, Roberto Innocenti, Roger Mello, Farshid Mesghali, Igor Oleynikov, Květa Pacovksá, Peter Sís and Lisbeth Zwerger – have created original art for ten beautiful silk scarves as a donation to IBBY and its work.
The scarves have been produced in limited editions of fifty copies for each design. The 50x180cm (19.7”x 70.9”) scarves can be bought for US$200.00 each.
The highly respected Australian artist, Robert Ingpen AM, FRSA, winner of the Hans Christian Andersen Illustrator Award in 1986, graciously donated his artwork in support of this important IBBY fundraising project.
We encourage members and non-members of IBBY Australia to support this initiative. Details are available here: https://fundraising.ibby.org/
