I’m currently doing a PhD on Book Design. I’m specializing in the relationship between Illustration and the
picture books Design – trying to understand the illustrator visual thinking’s role on conveying new
narratives and paradigms.

techniques and History of Art to fully understand visual communication as a visual phenomena and
cultural expression. I’ve chosen to specialized in Drawing (in a 3years Master) to study the roots of Art
