The Art of the Picture Book Exhibition

Love this bit of news I received today from the Canadian Children’s Book Centre: The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts will present The Art of the Picture Book from September 11 to October 14, 2012. Eighty¬†illustrators will be represented, including Ruth Ohi, Werner Zimmermann, Barbara Reid and Michael Martchenko.

Two days after the exhibit closes, an auction of ¬†the original art will take place as a fundraiser for the Canadian Children’s Book Centre.

What an amazing opportunity to own a piece of work from childhood heroes (or your children’s childhood heroes).
