The panel judged this picture book perhaps not exceptional but
nevertheless exemplary because it is beautifully finished and carefully made. The combination of image and text works well and – not so common – the non-snow-white paper has been chosen with care. Technically this cased book with its hard cover is simply very well executed. Particularly successful is the way the black spine meets the white front cover at the prominent hinge.
