Discover the best of contemporary book, editorial and student illustration through the work of the V&A Illustration Awards 2019 winners. This display highlights the winning work and student shortlist from the annual illustration competition.
The awards were established in 1972 and have since championed the UK creative industries, bringing recognition to the remarkable accomplishments of both published and student illustrators.
This year’s Book Illustration and Moira Gemmill Illustrator of the year is German-American author Nora Krug. Her work, Belonging, is an illustrated and hand-lettered visual memoir of a German family’s memory of WWII. It tackles the author’s loss of cultural belonging whilst confronting previously unanswered questions, piecing together the family’s troubling story.
