Mariana Ruiz Johnson

A wordless jewel of a  book imagining events 'While you sleep' by Argentinian illustrator Mariana Ruiz Johnson. Mariana's illustrations were the winning  illustrations of the 2015 Silent Book Contest at Bologna Children's Book Festival. They are rich with colour and detail like a summer night sky full of stars, the colours are vivid and the story keeps you running through the pages wondering what is going to happen.


  1. Gosh! Are they felt/fabric and stitch work or drawings? I can't tell! I thought the top one looked like a delicate embroidery. Gorgeous.
