Shaun Tan: An Autumn Showcase
Academy Award winner Shaun Tan is one of the great names around the world, not only for his books but film, animation and paintings. This autumn we are delighted to present a very special collection of his signed giclée editions illustrating artwork his two outstanding new books, Cicada and Tales From the Inner City.

Tales From the Inner City is a stunningly presented collection of twenty-five illustrated short stories exploring the relationship between humans and animals and our urban co-existence. This dark and surreal exploration is a truly masterly work, bearing all of Shaun Tan’s trademark wit and poignancy in both its prose and exquisite illustrations. Publishing October 2018 by Walker Studio.

Cicada is remarkable new picture book that explores themes of migrant workers and workplace bullying through the voice of a hardworking cicada. It is a story for anyone who has ever felt unappreciated, overlooked or overworked but dreams of magic, and has been hailed as Shaun Tan’s “most important and moving fable since The Arrival.” Publishing November 2018 by Hodder Children’s Books.

This surreal and beautiful collection of signed giclée editions was produced in Shaun Tan’s studio and is limited to small runs, offering a unique opportunity for fans and collectors of Shaun’s work. Alongside the exhibition there will be a selection of Shaun's signed books available for purchase as well, including the impressive special edition of 'The Singing Bones'.  To pre-order signed copies of Shaun’s new books, please email gallery@illustrationcupboard.com
