Taipei, Jan. 12 (CNA) The Taipei International Book Exhibition (TIBE) will feature the winning entries from the European Union Prize for Literature and the 2020 Bologna Children's Book Fair Illustrators Exhibition, when it opens later this month, the organizers said Tuesday.

The winning artworks from the Italian children's book fair will be displayed live for the first time, since it was canceled last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, said Page Tsou (鄒駿昇), the designer of the illustrators' booth at the Taipei exhibition.

A total of 171 illustrations by 76 artists of 24 nationalities, including six Taiwanese, will be on display at a special booth, Tsou said at a press conference.

"Many of the artworks to be displayed are very soothing, so if people get tired of reading books, they can come to our booth for a change of pace," he said, with a laugh.   [FULL  STORY]
