Picture books fans (and who isn’t) rejoice as the State Library of Western Australia has a new exhibition of original artworks from many of Australia’s best illustrators of children’s books.

Pictures by many illustrators including Shaun Tan, Alison Lester, Leigh Hobbs, Graeme Base, Ron Brooks, Frané Lessac, James Foley, Sean Avery and Matt Ottley will be on display in the State Library, on both the ground floor (in The Gallery) and on the Mezzanine Floor (in The Place).

The exhibition which started last Saturday runs at the State Library until 27 February 2014, so you have plenty of time to get into the City to check it out.
