Put Your Nose in a Book

Mai Miturich

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

Gerard Douwe, 1960

Two works by Ester Garcia Cortes

Richard Scarry, from The Golden Book of 365 Stories, 1955,

Edward Gorey

I really hope to be there next year!


  1. I found you on Pinterest and I am thrilled! All my life, I have been drawn to animal images. My home is full of animal items, when I draw, animals are what I choose to draw. Animals complete me and are such a natural part of my being. I feel such a connection to your site, thank you!

  2. Rest well :)
    Wish you all the best ...
    Life without Animalarium would be not complete
