An Award for Jamel

This stunning illustration comes from the wonderfully talented artist Jamel Akib and is one of several spreads for the children’s book "Tan to Tamarind".

The book has already gained award winning status after being selected as the "Honor title in the Picture Book category of the Asian/Pacific American Librarians Association (APALA) - Literature Award". Jamel explains: "The book was a collection of poems on the theme of the colour brown. Celebrating the shades of skin colour in all shades and how the shades conjure up different memories".
