Winners of the Israel Museum Ben-Yitzhak Award: What do the Queen of England and Og, King of Bashan, have in common? What is more colorful: poems about daily life or fictional poetry? And most importantly, how do you take care of cats? The answers to all these questions may be found in the pages of the books selected to receive this year’s Israel Museum Illustration Award. Vali Mintzi is the gold medal recipient for her illustration of the book Little One in the Park by Galit Raved. Honorary mentions have been awarded to Aviel Basil for Og, King of Bashan by Nathan Alterman, Lena Guberman for Aunt Margalit Fell into the Puddle by Nurit Zarchi, Rutu Modan for her own A Royal Banquet with the Queen, and Mira Friedman for Cat Comes Home by Tami Shem-Tov.
