In case you wonder where I was... having been recently diagnosed with a congenitally deviated nasal septum,
last week I went to the hospital to undergo surgery. Now I am starting to feel good, but a mandatory rest period
hasn't allowed me to make my costumary pilgrimage to the Bologna Book Fair. Yes, that sucks!
This quick post is dedicated with love to all the friends, colleagues and artists who were there
and to all illustrated book lovers, be they children, adults, or beasts
