Antonio Ferrara, Ventiquattromila baci (Twenty four thousand kisses), Settenove edizioni, Cagli, Italy, 2021

Ferrara is an Italian writer, poet and illustrator and the winner of the 2015 Andersen Prize for another accordion book titled I Am Like This. This humorous accordion depicts kisses being exchanged by a host of different people and even animals! I particularly like how Ferrara has used the fold of the page as the crucial element that briefly separates the kissers as they are about to begin this amorous act.

22 double-side pages, individual pages 7.75" x 4.75", and when open 8ft 10.5".
