So many reasons to celebrate Jan Pienkowski!

Jan Pienkowski has been awarded BookTrust‘s Lifetime Achievement Award.

It couldn’t have happened to a more talented, influential, innovative and delightful person.

You can read about the award here.

And you can listen to his Desert Island Discs interview from 2009 here. He’s got wonderful taste in music, and – perhaps unsurprisingly – asked for a supply of Moleskine sketchbooks as a luxury.
