Artists and Masterpieces of Illustration
The Illustrators Exhibition at Bologna Children's Book Fair reached its fiftieth edition.
An historic achievement that offers an exceptional opportunity to pause for a moment and look back at the developments made.
A story lasting over half a century, describing how a community of artists, publishers and readers all with one great passion - books and reading - met together in Bologna.
The result is the exhibition-book "Artists and masterpieces of illustration: 50 Illustrators Exhibition 1967-2016".
We have reconstructed the story in the company of the artists - fifty in all, ten from each decade - who made their debut or participated at the fair and were later to be honoured with international awards.
