the imaginary library

Oooo! The Western Libraries at Western Washington University in Bellingham is hosting a free exhibit of original art by 72 illustrators from 30 countries. It is on until the end of April 2010. The best part? The exhibit is called "An Imaginary Library: Children's Books That Do Not (Yet) Exist A Project of the International Youth Library, Munich, Germany." 72 illustrators from 30 countries have taken part and created an original book cover for a book that does not yet exist but which someday the artist would love to create. Each book cover is accompanied by a short text that expresses the artist's idea.
Based on the beautiful images above, I am guessing that many of these ideas are indeed going to become books one day soon.
