Emma Giuiliani: Durch die Blume

This is really a lovely book: "Voir le jour" has originally been published in French by Éditions des Grandes Personnes in 2013 and has now been released by Knesebeck in German. When you first open the leporello all you can see is black and white (except for a tiny ladybug), only by opening the flaps the sun starts shining and the flowers open their coloured petals. The very poetic text is about the different stages of life, the importance of sharing and the value of friendship and love. "Voir le jour" is the first book by Paris-based graphic designer Emma Guiliani.


The Spanish edition ("Ver la luz") has been published by Kókinos.
