Bologna Children's Bookfair 2008...Wow!
This was an incredible (and sometimes edible) treat to meet people passionate about children's books from all corners of the world. It will take me some time to digest all that I learned there. (burp. excuse me!)
Illustrator's Cafe in the fair offered lectures by illustrators, publishers, award judges, and had a huge display of original artwork that was also published in the Bologna Annual, 2008 Illustrator's Catalog. The fair was housed in the Bologna Fiera in 4 huge buildings. It took days just to visit the exhibits. To summarize, I can only say, "WOW!" Where do I leave the gratuity for this feast with kindred spirits.
