Haus Gallery 22.05.2007-29.06.2007
Joint exhibition of the leading Estonian book illustrators “Suur valmiraamat”
(“The Great Book of Fables”) in Haus Galerii from 22.05. to 29.06.07
The joint exhibition of the leading Estonian book illustrators in Haus Galerii was organized on the basis of the book “Suur valmiraamat” that was issued by Avita publishing house in the year 2006.
The book was chosen by the jury made up by the representatives of the Estonian Union of Publishers, Estonian Union of Designers-Graphical Artists and Estonian National Library as one of the 25 most beautiful books of 2006.
Fable, originating from the Orient and being well-known in the whole world, is regarded one of the oldest literary genre that has nicely stood the test of time.
The book contains the creation of the world’s best-known fable writers – Aesop, La Fontaine, Krylov and Lev Tolstoi, but also Estonian authors from Jakob Tamm up to Wimberg.
Illustration of “Suur valmiraamat” was a challenge to different artists – illustrators, who gave the fables their own faces and angles of vision, telling their story in a picture. Originals of the book’s illustrations in freely chosen techniques can be seen very rarely by art lovers, so a public exposition is for that a superb possibility.
The book has been illustrated by and at the exhibition expose their works PIRET MILDEBERG, JÜRI MILDEBERG,
