I finally got my book from @Carthusiaedizioni. It's really beautiful.
Now that it's in my hands I can compare it with the mole of work that it required to become what it is.
Most people don't realise how much time and expertise is hidden behind a book cover. A book is the result of an astonishing amount of time and dedication by a multitude of people, in the first place the author who has to find the key to translate the story from an intuition into something that the audience must find worth reading and remembering; then the publisher who has to find the right illustrator (me), for the right story (Lodovica Cima's).
It's a long story, probably longer than the one written in this book.
Thank you @PatriziaZerbi, @LodovicaCima and @SilviaMarelli and everybody at @CarthusiaEdizioni!
