Cover Revolution! Illustrators and the New Face of Italian Publishing

Cover Revolution! Illustrators and the New Face of Italian Publishing

Franco Matticchio, Lorenzo Mattotti, Emiliano Ponzi, Guido Scarabottolo, Gianluigi Toccafondo, and Olimpia Zagnoli.

A revolution is taking place on Italian bookstores shelves: more and more often illustrators are being asked to use their color palettes and distinctive marks to update publishers’ visual identities or redefine an author’s image. A handful of publishers, talented art directors, and a group of internationally acclaimed Italian illustrators, known for their original and powerful work, are to be thanked for this change. The idea to document this propitious moment in Italian illustration came to life after observing this phenomenon. The exhibition and the book, Cover Revolution! bring to light the work of some of the most loved and respected Italian illustrators: Franco Matticchio, Lorenzo Mattotti, Emiliano Ponzi, Guido Scarabottolo, Gianluigi Toccafondo, and Olimpia Zagnoli.

The exhibition is curated by Melania Gazzotti and produced in collaboration with the Istituto Italiano di Cultura in New York and Laboratorio Formentini in Milan.

A catalogue will be published for the occasion by Corraini Editions.

 

The exhibition will be open to the public until Friday 27th January during office opening time and on occasion of cultural events.
