Cisneros, selected for Bologna

Jesús Cisneros has been selected, once again, for the Illustrators Exhibition of Bologna Children Book Fair 2019 with his series interpreting limericks, illustrated poems, by Edward Lear.
The starting idea of this personal project was to create new limericks following the model of the originals in the basic rules: an image for poem, stanza of five verses with AABBA rhyme, absurd humor ... In Bologna, for the bases of the exhibition, only the drawings can be shown, so we took the opportunity to share here the complete limericks with texts written by the illustrator himself.

The limericks have been selected between 2,901 candidates from 62 countries by the jury composed of Diego Bianchi (Argentina), Maciej Byliniak (Poland), Alessandro Sanna (Italy), Harriët van Reek (Netherlands) and Béatrice Vincent (France).
