About the author:
Walter Fordham found his inspiration for Iliana in the Children's
Day holiday, established by Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche in the late 1970s for the children of Buddhist families. This holiday celebrates children and childhood, emphasizing that each child can be a king or queen. As a father of two girls and two boys, Walter decided to fulfill a request that had been made long ago for him to tell the story of Children's Day.

Tatjana Krizmanic's brilliant pastel drawings and oil paintings depict
ordinary life with a distinctly European sensibility. Krizmanic's work is marked by a warm cheerfulness, where bright colors and swirling perspectives make everyday settings come alive. She brings a touch of magic to commonplace scenes, such as a trip to the farmers' market or morning coffee. Surreal and inventive, her work recalls Chagall, Matisse, Klimt, Picasso - influences she grew up with.
