The Illustration Art of Robert Ingpen
by Robert Ingpen
Robert Ingpen's astonishing creative vision, expressed in well over 100 books, has enchanted countless families around the world. Like a keeper of our collective imagination, he has led us on wide-ranging journeys into the wondrous landscapes of the classics he has so famously illustrated: Neverland, the Riverbank, Oz and Alice's Wonderland - as well as into the magical scenes of his own invention and the more real but no less captivating scenery of his beloved Australia.
Wonderlands is a glorious celebration of Robert Ingpen's work as an illustrator and storyteller, told through his own illustrator's notes, original sketches and abundant illustrations from his award-winning publications, and revealing the places, stories and people that inspired him along the way.
Robert Ingpen was born in 1936 in Geelong, Australia, and still lives and works nearby in Barwon Heads. He studied illustration art and book design at The Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology. In 1986 he was awarded the Hans Christian Andersen Medal for his contribution to children’s literature and he has been honoured with Membership of the Order of Australia. A world-renowned artist and author, Ingpen has designed, illustrated and written more than one hundred books, including his highly acclaimed series of illustrated Children’s Classics, which have now been published in many editions around the world. www.robertingpen.com
