Slovakia:Stamp on Biennial of Illustrations Bratislava 2011

\"\"The Slovak Post has issued a stamp commemorating the Biennial of Illustrations Bratislava (BIB), largest non-commercial event of its kind in the world presenting the original works of books for children and youth in a competitive way.

It is held every odd year in autumn in Bratislava. The stamp is a reproduced illustration from the book Tracy\’s Tiger by a talented young Slovak artist Martina Matlovicova-Kralova (24th Dec 1975), which won the previous Biennial BIB Golden Apple. Her work is characterized by the use of combined techniques – painting is often supplemented by collage which completes the whole illustration compositionally.
