SPECIAL JURY PRIZE

Lullaby for Grandmother    

Text and illustrations by Iwona Chmielewska         
BIR Publishing , South Korea, 2019 

What the jury said:
“A Polish artist’s established collaboration with a Korean publisher has created this unusual picturebook, which has used first-class production and design to reclaim the artistic value of crafts. Transforming a collection of lace, handkerchiefs, embroidered linens, and domestic fabrics – the stuff of her grandmother’s dowry - this book tells the story of the grandmother’s life from childhood to adulthood in a visual masterpiece."
