Illustrators Annual 2016
Bologna Children’s Book Fair
In the 50th year of Bologna Children’s Book Fair, five jurors had to select 77 final artists for the exhibition from 3200 submissions – each artist having submitted 5 pieces, totalling almost 16,000 pieces of art to look through.
The ‘Jury Report’ describes how this task was undertaken and how they were searching for a spark – works that would transport young and old to new worlds and carry them away on a dream.
Those chosen 77 artists are now presented in this publication - from the ink and watercolour drawings by Camille Almeras, to the embroidery and collage work of Annalisa Bollini and the wax pastels and digital media of Marika Maijala. It showcases an incredible range of method, style and imagination.
