Children's book illustrations on show

An exhibition of children's book illustrations called "Biennale of Illustrations Bratislava 1997" (BIB), will be open to the public from September 5 until October 31, giving a chance for museum-goers to see artwork from 40 different countries. "Children's books are timeless," said Dušan Roll, BIB's general commissioner. "They give more fantasy, education and humanization to the child than anything else."
BIB has been held for 30 years with the idea of presenting the world's best illustrations to children and adults alike. This year's exhibition will be the sixteenth in the history of BIB.
All of the works including ones awarded with the prizes BIB Grand Prix, BIB Golden Apples and BIB Plaques will be displayed at Dom Umenia, on SNP Square in Bratislava. The exhibition's organizers, Bibiana Gallery and the Ministry of Culture, prepared a small exhibit in rememberance of Albín Brunovsky, one of BIB's founders and one of Slovakia's most popular illustrators.
