Exhibition of Slovak illustrators who received awards at the Biennial of Illustrations Bratislava (BIB) between 1967 and 2016 / Luxembourg
The Biennial of Illustrations Bratislava (BIB) is the world’s biggest exhibition of original illustrations of children's books. Over the course of its history spanning more than 50 years, the BIB has seen the finest illustrations for children produced in a number of countries around the world. The Slovak illustration school founded by Albín Brunovský and based on creative efforts of Vincent Hložník has inspired several generations of Slovak illustrators up to this day. The quality of Slovak illustration work is shown by the 28 prizes awarded to Slovak illustrators in 25 editions of the BIB. Seventeen illustrators from different generations have received awards, some of them on several occasions. This exhibition presents the work of Slovak authors who received awards at the BIB between 1967 and 2015.
