Reading and nature are tried-and-tested tonics for the hustle and bustle of modern life and something truly magical takes place when they collide. That’s why we are thrilled to sponsor The Folio Society Reading Room Garden at this year’s Chelsea Flower Show.
The Award is open to illustrators, student or professional, who have not previously been
commissioned by The Folio Society, with the aim of finding, platforming and supporting new
illustration talent from around the world.
Gérard DuBois has won in the Book Illustration category and has been awarded the Moira Gemmill Illustrator of the Year Prize for his work on The Folio Society's edition of The Road at this year's V&A Illustration Awards. Judge Posy Simmonds described DuBois's stunning illustrations as ‘magnificent, rich, poignant and melancholic’.
