Are we there yet?
Illustrations by inaugural Australian Children's Laureate, Alison Lester.
Are We There Yet? is a warm, heartfelt story based on an actual journey undertaken by Alison and her family when she was a child. The exhibition shows both the original illustrations as well as the preliminary and developmental stages in the making of the book - from Alison's children's actual travel diaries, through text, illustration and design drafts, to the final published book - including a number of folios of developmental drawings.
Exhibition toured by Books Illustrated.
Presented in conjunction with the Curtis Coast Literary Carnivale initiative From Reef to Rigger: This is My Place!
Students works produced during the From Reef to Rigger project will also be displayed.
Official launch: 10am Friday 2 August 2013
