Austrian children's book illustrators' work at Biennial of Illustrations Bratislava

Currently, 15 Austrian illustrators of children's books present their work at BIB 2015, the international Biennial of Illustrations Bratislava in the capital city of Slovakia. The children's book illustrations from all over the world are on view at Kunsthalle Bratislava until 25 October 2015. The 15 Austrian illustrators were collected by the design organization designaustria under the aspect best children's book illustrations of the last two years.

The (German language) story is about Mrs Strubinski and her hat store where she finds for each visitor the matching head wear - matching in the meaning of good looking as well as the positive effect of the hat on the wearer.
