Manuel Marsol won International Award for Illustration of the Fair of the Children’s Book of Bologna 2017, the most prestigious award in the field of children’s illustration in the world.
“Wild nature is a prodigious place and to enter it, one has to cross an invisible border. Losing yourself on a mountain, on any mountain, involves losing something that we were in our previous life. Upon returning, as in a dream, the known world becomes unknown for a moment.”
Manuel Marsol and Carmen Chica demonstrate again their unique narrative tempo that combines poetry and illustrations in long movie-like camera shots, as they did in “El tiempo del gigante”. With “The Mountain”, they give us a book that is pure magic and 100% beauty.
