I’ve just got back from the Bologna children’s book fair, which was brilliant and very inspiring, if a little overwhelming – it is absolutely huge! Lots of beautiful books, particularly from the French publishers and some of the Italian, all wonderfully printed and produced. And of course the delicious food and sunshine made it all the more enjoyable!
Jack and the Beanstalk is my latest book for Edizioni Corraini – it’s the traditional story simply illustrated and available in Italian and English. Here are some spreads plus a couple of pics of my books at the Corraini stand.
I also signed some books at the amazing Co-op Ambascatori (not sure of the spelling.. but it was something like that) – a book shop, but also an Italian food emporium, restaurant, and wine bar (with a large selection of beer too)! What more could you want?
