Kaja Kajfez - Shortlisted for Wainright Prize ! Aug 17 2022

Our star artist Kaja Kajfez's book "Around the World in 80 Trees" is now shortlisted for none other than the Wainright Prize! A massive achievement!

Around the World in 80 Trees was written by Ben Lerwill and published by Welbeck Publishing group. The book explores and celebrates our planet's trees and all they do for us.

"Take a trip across the globe to discover the world's most remarkable trees and discover their astonishing abilities, importance to the Earth's health, and how they help humanity in this gorgeous and enlightening volume."

Kaja lives and works in Croatia in the small, charming city of Varaždin. She studied at the University North in Croatia, and set up her own studio, focussing on illustration, lettering, and surface pattern design. Besides doing her dream job, Kaja loves to take long walks in nature, scroll through old picture books, listen to online concerts, and spend time with her dog.

An amazing achievement so far, we are extremely proud - we will be behind her every step of the way, come the main event of the Wainright prize on the 7th of September! Everything crossed!
