Received this lovely B'day gift from my wonderful colleagues. Hooray ! ❖\^_^/❖
Here is a little BIO of the illustrator :
Robert Ingpen, born in 1936, is one of Australia’s most successful illustrators and has written and/or illustrated more than 100 published books. He attended Geelong College to 1954 and received a Diploma of Graphic Art from RMIT. In 1958, Robert was appointed by the CSIRO as an artist to interpret and communicate the results of scientific research. From 1968, Robert worked as a freelance designer, illustrator and author. Robert also became the only Australian to be awarded the Hans Christian Andersen Medal for illustration. Presently, Roberts’s work is perhaps best known for his illustrations in the centenary editions of "Peter Pan and Wendy" and "The Wind in the Willows".
Lovely, aren't they ?
