ALENKA SOTTLER about her work:
Mouse in a fast motion - this is the motif I'll develope more. Children like speed, they like that all is in the air. Like they'd always be somehow euforic with life. Inspiration for how to ilustrate speed was the painting of Marcel Duchamp »NUDE DESCENDING A STAIRCASE«
You will receive your mouse in a neat folder, with the certificate and biography attached.
This poetry collection for the children has conquered the harts of the audience and the jury in an instant. ”The Bukla magazine wrote: ''These little poems were masterly illustrated by Alenka Sottler, and now they are all collected in a cute illustrated book Crumbs from Mice Valley. Sottler chose fingerprint technique, that helped her to capture the playfulness of small mice, that people loved on a first sight''.On the book fair in Ljubljana 2017 the book received the prize for the most beautifully designed book, than it received the prize for the best youth literature work Večernica 2018 and Kristina Brenkova award 2018 for inovativeness. Munchen Internationale Jugendbibliothek has listed the book in their catalogue of recomended literature for youth White Raven. With the fingerprint illustrations I wish to show to children and adults, that the essence is simplicity and creativity.
