My visit to the Children's Book Fair lasted two days . I wanted to get the best of it and I made a few hundred photos!
I made my best to see most of the stands and keep memory of the beautiful books I saw.
A page from another book by the same author
Other books I liked
I really loved this book where the author explained plays on words with the help of animals
So nice this book by Bruno Heitz
I found my favourite authors signing books. Here is Fabian Negrin at Orecchio Acerbo
And here is Lorenzo Mattotti: I bought one of his books and you can see him signing it! (things only artists love....)
The illustrators' exhibition had a nice arrangement, and
soldiers almost attacked my trolley!!!
The BOP Prize (best juvenile literature publishers ) this year went among others to the indian Tara Books.
My favourite were this book entitled "Waterlife"
and this wonderful "Drawing from the City", by artist Teju Behan,
I could not leave without visiting the beautiful exhibition "OLTREMAI" by Lorenzo Mattotti , at the Pinacoteca , which was opening on that monday.
Powerful and mighty 70 x 100 cm. works on paper all black and white . You can also visit the exhibition on You Tube (it is not the same feeling, but you still have idea of the power of this great author.
