Nancy Vo: Der Outlaw
Nancy Vo: Ranger

by Nancy Vo

Introduction: Jean-Claude Lin
publishing director Verlag Freies Geistesleben

Nancy Vo, Canadian author and illustrator, impressively demonstrates the union of word and image in her two picture books "The Outlaw" and "Ranger", which were also published in German. Not only children are fascinated about these books because of the author's unique illustration technique, a mixture of ink, watercolors and the transfer of newspaper print onto Rising Stone-henge paper.

A selection of Nancy Vo's work will be on view as part of the Literaturpflaster Canada in Bad Berleburg. Jean-Claude Lin, director of the publishing house Freies Geistesleben as well as translator of the two picture books, will introduce the exhibition and and portray the author and artist in relation to her work.

In her books, Nancy Vo expresses different perspectives of friendship and trust in an authentic way: In "Ranger," she describes respect and mutual aid between Ranger Annie and a wounded fox; "The Outlaw" is a story of redemption when a boy ends the distrust between villagers and a stranger.

Nancy Vo

Nancy Vo grew up where the sun rises over the prairies and sets behind the Rocky Mountains. She studied art and architecture, joined the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators and decided to become a picture book designer.

By day, she works as an urban planner and is politely tolerated by her colleagues for her puns and argyle socks. At night, at ungodly hours, she sits down at the drawing board.

Nancy Vo lives in Vancouver BC in Canada.
