Beatrice Alemagna

  • 5 stars across 18 books
Born in 1973, Beatrice Alemagna made her first picture book at the age of eight and has since published over 20 books with leading international publishers. Her techniques of illustration vary depending on the story of each book, but range from the use of pencil and paint to collage and embroidery. A consummate storyteller, her intimate and imaginative books are completely intertwined works where the words and the pictures meld seamlessly and become one.
