BAOkolektiv / Twelve Little Lullabies
Books of little fairytales and little horrors are now followed by another box of author designed notebooks, this time with little lullabies for little hands. A tender publication presents lullabies, rhymes, numerations as well as narrations ending in dreaming… The book has a few words and many pictures from authors Michaela Kukovičová, Tereza Říčanová, Alžběta Zemanová, Juraj Horváth, Magdalena Rutová, Dagmar Urbánková, Chrudoš Valoušek, Eva Volfová, Alžběta Skálová, Blexbolex, Iwona Chmielewská and Franziska Neuber. The twelve notebooks are united by a uniform design and common cardboard storage box. BAOBAB Publishers has used the same style of the boxes for Twelve Little Horrors (2013) and Twelve Little Fairytales (2015).
