IBBY International fundraiser on Wed Sept 2: Limited edition scarves created by renowned children’s book illustrators

Ten of the world’s greatest children’s book illustrators have created limited-edition scarves in support of IBBY’s work around the world. These Hans Christian Andersen Award-winning illustrators 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.

IBBY would like to warmly thank the ten illustrators who generously donated their art work for this project. Our huge appreciation goes to Albertine, Quentin Blake, Robert Ingpen, Roberto Innocenti, Roger Mello, Farshid Mesghali, Igor Oleynikov, Květa Pacovksá, Peter Sís and Lisbeth Zwerger.

The 50x180cm (19.7”x 70.9”) scarves can be bought for US$200.00 each.

The sale of these beautiful scarves will start on Wednesday, 2 September 2020 at 2:30pm Central European Summer Time (CEST), and will be shipped within two weeks of purchase from Basel, Switzerland.
