To celebrate one year of Animalarium, we are giving away one of our few copies
of the beautiful Korean edition of Sebastiano (Ranchetti)'s L'Albero Gufo (The Owl Tree).
Don't worry about the language,the book is completely wordless!
The Owl Tree, a rather mysterious symbolic journey through an existential night forest,
is one of Sebastiano's more personal books. It was first published by Jaca Book in Italy,
where critics described it as psychedelic and remindful of Bruno Munari.
Its 64 silent, graphic, dark and elegant pages are quite unusual for the local children's publishing sector,
and the book tends to migrates between the children's, art and design sections of bookstores.
Unfortunately, because of the language barrier, we still have no idea about how it is
doing in Korea, where it was published by Sonyunhangil - Hangilsa in 2009!
To participate in the giveway, just write a comment to this post
in which you nominate a favorite artist(s) discovered through Animalarium.
There's time to leave comments until August 14th, then we'll draw the winner!
