It is one I created while I was at the workshops last summer, under the tutelage of Svjetlan Junakovich.
The theme this year is "Tales of India" and illustrators from all over the world will be participating, including: Philip Giordano, Tom Schamp, Clotilde Perrin, Aurelia Fronty, Sherley Freudenreich and many many others (click here for the full line-up). This year's guest of honour is lovely Linda Wolfsgruber. And furthermore, Simone Rea has created this year's display of "How a book is born" ("Como nasce un libro illustrato") — in which he creates several large panels describing (in both images and words) the steps that went into making his most recent book "Favole" ("Aesop's Fables"). These are always included in the Sàrmede annual.
Best of all: another road trip to Italy when I was least expecting it!! WOO-HOO!!!
