Walked through a market street area in Bologna on the way to the fair this morning.
Lots of shops getting their Easter displays up which are gorgeous, especially the chocolate shops!
So much chocolate, so little time!
I managed to get some business cards from Sally Heinrich and Lorell Lehman before leaving and so we stuck them up on some of the illustrator’s boards at the fair.
Igor Oleynikov is one of the illustrators from this year’s guest country Switzerland, and there was a huge display of his work, which is superb. I love this illustration below.
Morris Gleitzman spoke about how the Australian contingent must be so dedicated…look at our eyes…we have travelled the furthest of any countries to get here. So true!
This poster was at the Australia stand.
So it being Wednesday as I write this, I am rostered on later today to sit and talk about my books to passers by. Really looking forward to it.
