WORK: WONDERFUL WIZARD OF OZ
WNW Member #2558 Olimpia Zagnoli illustrated L. Frank Baum's The Wonderful Wizard of Oz as part of Classics Reimagined, a series of classic novels illustrated by contemporary artists from all over the world. Published on September 15th by Rockport Publishers, this lively and modern rendition showcases Olimpia's unique style, inhabiting the stark white backdrop of the page with minimalist shapes and running patterns primarily cloaked in a fitting emerald green. The union of book and artist is also eerily appropriate since Olimpia has been going by "OZ" since well before this project, and The Wonderful Wizard of Oz has long been one of her favorite novels. You can purchase the hardcover here.
