FANT IZ PAPIRJA A Boy From Paper
HiBird Books, 2021, ISBN 978-961-07-0592-5
A Boy From Paper is a picture book written by Nejc Gazvoda, illustrated by Hana Jesih and published by HiBird Books. Gazvod's literary debut in the field of youth literature tells in a metaphorical way what can happen when two very different worlds meet - the world of paper and the world of ink. The picture book encourages the acceptance of difference and the child's imagination of how to play with paper and ink.
Illustrator Hana plays with basic artistic elements and materials. Illustrations are made in a mixed technique combining a digital collage with a paper collage, an ink drawing and a colored pencil drawing. Selected is the playful typeface Katka, which has all letters entirely cut-out of paper.
The picture book has received Special Recognition of the new path to innovation in addition to the nomination for the Kristina Brenkova Award for the original Slovenian picture book 2021.
