Shaun Tan in Stockholm for ALMA

Oscar-winning illustrator/author Shaun Tan was in Stockholm last week to accept the Astrid Lindgren Memorial Award – from Crown Princess Victoria, no less! Posters were up along the streets, and when I was at Hötorget monday, I snapped this shot of the banners draping the front of Konserthuset, where the award ceremony took place. Unfortunately, I had to miss the book signing at Sciencefictionbokhandeln.

The statue in the foreground is Orfeusgruppen by Carl Milles.
