What it is about…
We look at the picture book DER BESUCH made of cardboard, where shy Elise meets Emil, a curious little boy who brings color into her life. How did the book come about? How long does it take, who's working on it? Antje Damm, born 1965 in Wiesbaden, studied architecture in Darmstadt and Florence and worked in Berlin and Nuremberg. Since her 4 daughters are in the world, she writes and illustrates children's books. She lives with her family, a cat and a turtle in an old half-timbered house near Giessen in Germany.
DER BESUCH is among the 2018 New York Times/New York Public Library Best Illustrated Children’s Books Winners.
