Dalia Adillon illustrates Venice for ‘Acqua Alta’, a new children’s book about climate change!
Dalia Adillon has illustrated ‘Acqua Alta’, a new book published by Jollibre, Santillana Editorial, about the effects of climate change on the city of Venice. Dalia illustrated the cover as well 10 interior images, telling the story of thirteen year old Lauretta and her plan to save Venice with the help and wisdom of her grandfather, Giuseppe Orologio.
Written by Spanish writer Cinta Arasa, Dalia found that images came easily to her because of the interesting story and her preexisting love for the city of Venice!
“I really enjoyed working on the book cover, I have very good memories of my trip to Venice and I was able to rescue some photos to use in the documentation of the project!”
While the cover illustration is in full colour, the interior images are all black and white; a small challenge for Dalia, who succeeds in making them as engaging and delightful as the cover, “…it was a challenge for me to tackle the work in grayscale, but since I had previously worked on a book with similar characteristics, I was pretty sure that the results would be similar!”
