Congratulations to Levi Pinfold whose stunning picture book, Black Dog, has won the prestigious CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal 2013.
We are proud to announce that an illustration by our wonderfully talented new artist, Anuska Allepuz, has been selected for use on the AOI's invitation and poster for the prestigious 'Images 36, The Best of British Illustration 2012' exhibition. Her delicate but modern approach to drawing shines through in this stylish design and will be a fantastic advert for all that is great about illustration today. Make sure to go down to Somerset House, the new home of the AOI, to see the exhibit!
