Isol about her works

Kulturhuset (House of Culture) May 22

This year’s award lecture was carried out as a conversation between Isol and picture book specialist and jury member Ulla Rhedin.  Lennart Eng, artist, graphic designer and jury member held a welcome address and introduced Isol and Ulla Rhedin.

Isol started by reading her book It’s useful to have a duck : It’s useful to have a boy which made the audience smile, and started a conversation about this “double-narrated” story with different perspectives. Ulla Rhedin led the audience through Isol’s works and discussed her creative techniques, which conveys many possibilities, as well as her way of producing stories that the reader can interpret the way he or she likes.

Isol gave an insight into her working process by showing sketches from her work with Doggy slippers (Pantuflas de perrito), and pointing out how the process was carried out up until the final version of the book was finished.

This event was a co-operation between Kulturhuset (House of Culture) and the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award.
