Bologna 2012

At our Israel Showcase at the SCBWI booth, we displayed some of our PAL members' books and a portfolio of our illustrators. Since the three of us, who were presenting the showcase, are illustrators – we found an interesting way to attract attention to our showcase. We printed postcards with the SCBWI-Israel logo and during the showcase people requested these with our drawings – SCBWI Bologna souvenirs. That was a lot of fun and people liked it very much.
