Dust Kid book Bologna Ragazzi Award New Horizons – winner
What the jury said This powerful, silent visual sequence is in the form of the book version of an animated film. Its compelling black and white imagery quietly tells the story of an apparently ordinary life in intense detail. Tiny moments in time are described across numerous pages, slowed down almost to a standstill with scrupulous attention to the most apparently insignificant of everyday objects. The author sustains the same level of intense focus throughout this epic journey, convincing the Jury that this is a work of exceptional creative ambition.
