while browsing through our local bookshop the other day, Daughter and I found came across this copy of Alice in Wonderland.
The cover illustrations spoke to us, and after a flick through it, we decided to have a further look at the illustrative works of Manuela Adreani.
A resident of Turin, Manuela began her career as a graphic designer before moving into the world of freelance illustration. Her work has a simple whimsy to it, while her colours are muted and textured, which (I personally think) lends well to the genre of fairytales.
We’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for more of her works whilst we browse other book shops!
