Busy in Lund

On the second day of the literary festival LitteraLund Isol took part in a discussion with illustrators Judith Drews (Germany) and Benjamin Chaud (France). Differences, similarities and preferences concerning topics and colours were discussed. One thing they all agreed on is that humour is a very effective way to deal with serious topics. But can you joke about everything in childrens’s books? Yes almost. And a tabu in one country may not be necessarry cause any scandals among readers in another. More scandalous is pehaps editors and publishes attempt to change colours or formats … Changing techniques and formats is the same thing as changing the artist’s interpretation.
