Local Library, Petržalka

The upcoming Biennial of Illustrations Bratislava (BIB) 2017 will open its doors to visitors soon. This event represents one of the most important shows of children’s book illustration in the world.

You can already accept a small invitation to this big event and enjoy the exhibition HOMAGE TO FAIRY TALE which presents the outstounding French illustrators parcipating at the biennial throughout its history. The collection of 26 awarded illustrations is accompanied with a hundred of interesting children’s books made by French illustrators participating at the BIB. Illustrations made to books of various genres show a versatility of the applied art and graphic techniques. French book production is typical for its lightness, playfulness, minimalism, preciseness and often a grandiose accomplishment.

This exhibition of French book illustrator is an updated reinstallation of the exhibition prepared in frame of the Biennial of Animation Bratislava (BAB) 2016. It will be open in the Local Library Petržalka at Prokofievova St.5 until the end of summer holiday.
