Every year, writers and illustrators from all over the world come together to Bologna, Italy to showcase their work. The Bologna Book Fair and the SCBWI Bologna Symposium are held in conjunction with each other.
And each year, Korea was the Guest of Honour. This exhibit was titled Round and Round in a Circle. As the guest of honour, the Bologna exhibit came to Seoul and our SCBWI group took a field trip out to see it!
There was so much talent at the fair. Overwhelming! My head was spinning though I'm not an artist, I was inspired.
Here's a recap of some of the fun stuff that I saw:
