October seems to be a Shaun Tan sort of month!

'Skull Fox', Limited edition print, edition of 150 - $195 

October seems to be a Shaun Tan sort of month!

Shaun Tan's latest book, The Singing Bones, published by Allen & Unwin, has just been released. Signed copies are available from Books Illustrated NOW!

In this beautifully presented volume, the essence of seventy-five fairy tales by the Brothers Grimm is wonderfully evoked by Shaun Tan's extraordinary sculptures and his beautifully succinct text.

'These little figures of clay, with their simplified features, their single attributes, are perfect realisations of the strangeness of the characters they represent.'  
Philip Pullman, from his foreword to the book.

If you are in Melbourne you have the chance to see an exhibition of these sculptures at:
No Vacancy Gallery 
Oct 1 to October 18

New prints & Originals 
Shaun has chosen 14 of his sculptural illustrations from The Singing Bones to release as limited edition prints -

The Rabbits Opera...
And as part of the Melbourne Festival there will be a showing of an opera based on Shaun Tan & John Marsden’s iconic picture book The Rabbits, published by Lothian Books. They will also be In Conversation at the National Gallery of Victoria on Sunday 11th of October.
