Tomi Has Been Awarded the Bayerischer Buchpreis 2017

This week in Munich, Tomi Ungerer was awarded the coveted Bayerischer Buchpreis. The prize is sponsored by the state of Bavaria, and was presented by Ilse Eigner, Minister for Economic Affairs and Media, Energy and Technology.  Tomi debuted a new pair of disco shoes with flashing soles for the ceremony! In his own words,  it took him light years to get here…

Here are a selection of photos from the prizegiving. (All photos © Aria Ungerer).
