Forever – Beatrice Alemagna
The construction of this new book by Beatrice Alemagna is such that each double page spread is interleaved with a single sheet of semi-opaque tracing paper style paper. The semi opaque sheet also has an illustration on it which reads differently when it is on the recto or the verso page. The theme of the book is things that either last forever or don’t. One spread has a soap bubbles floating away, another has a case of nits disappearing, hair falls out as do teeth but in Alemagna’s hand there is one thing that always lasts.
Alemagna’s storytelling and illustrative style are perfectly suited to this format; a book for all ages.
