“I can’t imagine a children’s book without illustrations. Kids should first observe the images and recognize what they see in them, and then proceed to words. Any psychologist would confirm that”. – Lucie Dvořáková, εικονογράφος
Children’s book illustration has a rich and impressive legacy, with the first children’s book in Europe belonging to Czech educator Comenius in the 17th Century! Today, the “12 Worlds” exhibition presents the 12 best current Czech children’s book illustrators, with an impressive diversity of styles and techniques, that is soon to blow the minds of children and grown-ups as well.
