Jørn’s Magnificent Imagination is a fabulous new picture book from EK Books that follows the early life of Jørn Utzon showing young readers that there is no limit to what they might achieve if they follow their dreams.

Celebrating new ideas can make a world of difference. 

Jørn’s Magnificent Imagination is the true story of 
Jørn Utzon, the architect of the world-renowned Sydney Opera House. This gorgeously illustrated book follows Jørn through his life as he discovers his love of building and creating, gathering ideas from everything around himself. 

Created by Melbourne-based Coral Vass and Nicky Johnston, Jørn’s story is about embracing dreams, believing in your own abilities, and the power of new ideas.


Written in honour of the 50th anniversary of the opening of the Sydney Opera House, it is also a topical springboard for educators and families into how the iconic landmark came to be.

The book is available from EK Books here.
