Indeed, many of her photos are used in her books. Valuing Nancy's work, I'm honoured she shares our lovely camouflage! When you are new to the childrens bookmaking industry, you may ask yourself: "What does all this fuss about the front page reveal? It' not even on the shelf!

It' s a loooong proces from the initial concept to the finished product and this nice sleeve felt like an important landmark to be celebrated in 2018 Bologna Children's Fair.

But at the show I found out that many publishing houses outside the US use very different publication style, produce very special books and take a risk in illustrations and contents that I never thought possible. But how can my work end up at the front end of the bend? ý International laws are important for the durability of a work.
I learnt at the fair that if the copyrights for your books were not to sell soon after they were introduced, there could be a future for them. Miranda Paul, for example, who has been widely publicized, said that her sister books, Mia Move Out, are of interest to a publishing house in China, as China now has more family members with family.
She had a shop window for her books and contacted potential legal representatives abroad in the run-up to the fair. At the fair, she talked to them and when they showed interest in a magazine, she shared her details with her agents and/or editorial group. There were other members of Scwi who made this kind of connection at the fair, and it was thrilling!

I had seen photos from the children's book fair in Bologna and I was expecting it to be big. There were many expatriate booksellers and of course many children's books. I never thought so much of an intense and respectful approach to the craft of making books for kids.
Whenever I moved the hub to the location - BolognaFiere - it was as if I had abandoned a typically full of events and ended up in a unique place that was only made for and about children's books. What is the situation at the fair?

The Society of Children's Books Writers and Illustrator's Stall (Stand 26 B 76) was a place of action and the home of bookmakers from all over the globe. High points were the Duel Illustrator Contest (in which two illuminators are part of an unreleased script and were asked to quickly paint a picture of it in front of an audience) and display cases in which members of ScwiI share their books and often also their works of artistic creation for guests.

Intriguing books are produced and distributed in almost every part of the globe.
