Il Racconto dell'illustrazione
Andrea Rauch presents his latest book IL RACCONTO DELL’ILLUSTRAZIONE, great illustrators and imaginary characters between the mid-nineteenth century and the end of the twentieth century. “The tale of illustration”, just released by the publisher La casa Usher, explores the field of children’s literature from a period when the attention of writers, pedagogues and illustrators had begun to focus decidedly on early childhood. The book presents the most important characters and interpreters of that world (from Wilhelm Busch to Collodi and Chiostri, from Lewis Carroll to Gustave Doré, from Antoine de Saint Exupery to Tomi Ungerer and Maurice Sendak …).
