Logos Illustrati, 2016, Hardcover, Book Condition: New Book, Dust Jacket Condition: No, First
A book with no words, just illustrations, to celebrate and pay homage to Cosimo, a kid who decided one day to live up in the trees and never get down again. Dedicated to the great Italo Calvino, who showed a different horizon, full of courage and passion, to all those who were lucky to read his books, in the hope that many others will read them. Calvino's classic novel 'The Baron in the Trees' provided the inspiration for Olmos' lavish and surreal illustrations in 'Cosimo'. Dedicated to all the children and the adults-to-be, to their dignity and to their right to be different and to not necessarily agree with the majority, so that one day they might stand by their decisions and be proud of their feats, however bizarre they may seem. To determination. To courage. To love. To passion. To freedom. 76 pages. Shipped Weight: .59 kilos. ISBN: 8857607895. ISBN/EAN: 9788857607894.
