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 internationally acclaimed Italian illustrators, known for their original and powerful work, are to be thanked for this revolutionary change.
Cover Revolution! is an exhibition and book (published by Corraini Editions) that aims to document this phenomenon, featuring work by the most popular and beloved Italian illustrators such as Lorenzo Mattotti, Franco Matticchio, Guido Scarabottolo, Gianluigi Toccafondo, Emiliano Ponzi, and Olimpia Zagnoli. The exhibition will be held at the Italian Cultural Institute in New York from September 29–October 26, 2016, in Milan at the Laboratorio Formentini from November 7–25, 2016, and in Dublin at the Italian Cultural Institute from November 19, 2016–January 29, 2017.
Guido Scarabottolo and Emiliano Ponzi will attend the New York opening on September 29
