AN exhibition created in Worcester which features the work of over 300 illustrators, including Axel Scheffler, best known for the Gruffalo, is attracting attention around the world.

The Migrations exhibition is the brainchild of illustration lecturers from the International Centre for the Picture Book in Society (ICPBS) at the University of Worcester and is now touring the globe.

It features more than 300 postcards each bearing an illustration of a bird, representing the theme of migration. Illustrators from around the world have contributed.

Their work hangs alongside postcards by recent University of Worcester illustration graduates and professionals at various stages in their careers.

Tobias Hickey, course leader for illustration at the university, said: “We hung the exhibition at the International House of Art for Children in Bratislava and were delighted that it attracted more than 9,000 visitors. Since then we’ve been getting requests from all around the world to host the exhibition. We’ve taken it to South Africa and South Korea so far and have requests from Brazil, Germany, Russia, New Zealand, Japan, China and Estonia.”
