Shaun Tan is an Australian illustrator and author of children’s books and speculative fiction cover artist. He won an Academy Award for The Lost Thing, a 2011 animated film adaptation of a 2000 picture book he wrote and illustrated.
One of Tan’s recent projects has been the creation of 50 small sculptures to illustrate Philip Pullman’s Grimm Tales. Published in October by Aladin Verlag, Grimms Märchen is only available as a German language edition for the moment (the original editions of Grimm Tales by Philip Pullman remain unillustrated). You can find out a little more about this project on Shaun Tan’s website.
