An Angel is Born: Iranian Children’s Picture Book

I’ve posted before about the International Children’s Digital Library, which is full of facsimile copies of entire children’s books. Here’s the cover and an illustration from An Angel is Born, an Iranian picture book for children published in 2004, illustrated by Neda Azimi.

The illustrations are a beautiful combination of drawing and textile collage. It’s not surprising that it won an award at the Bologna Children’s Book Fair.

The book is available in its entirety on the International Children’s Digital Library web page.
