Teckningsmuseet participated in this year’s Book Fair in Gothenburg – the largest cultural event in Scandinavia. Together with the association Svenska Tecknare (Swedish Drawers) we lead an artist talk and also awarded a unique Book Picture Prize to a creator who had a “profound significance for the image as creative and artistic field in book publishing in Sweden”. The Book Picture Prize 2018 went to the Swedish illustrator and author Eva Lindström!

The prize ceremony took place at the Book Fair on Friday, 28 September, in Svenska Tecknare’s stand A02:27. The award consists of a diploma and 10,000 SEK.
