It all started when I stumbled upon their illustrations for The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood. I couldn’t resist rummaging more about the person behind this artwork and then I found out that it was not one person but two: the Balbusso twins!
Anna and Elena Balbusso are two sisters living and working together in Milan, whose work is internationally recognized and awarded. At their website you can find a lot of magnificent illustrations inspired by books and fiction.
People do say “don’t judge a book by its cover” but an exception is justified here. Besides, what’s better than a great book accompanied with great illustrations?
