Charming picture-book illustrations by Gaia Bordicchia

Gaia Bordicchia is a children’s book illustrator based in Italy. Her images are sweet and charming and I particularly love the subtle textures that run through her work.

This year has been a particularly great year for Gaia with the release of two picture books. The first is ‘La Piccola Fiammiferaia’, an Italian adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s ‘The Little Match Girl; the second is ‘Tartarin de Tarascon’, an adaptation of Tartarin of Tarascon. Both books look really beautiful (some images from them are pictured above) and I’m sure they’re a joy to read. You can see more examples of Gaia’s work online here.
