Text anchors the oral tradition and the history of peoples in the written word, but illustration and animation free the story from its corset and recover the interpretation and the personal touch that was once provided by the storyteller. Our latest issue, with an awesome cover by the German illustrator ATAK, counts on illustrations inspired by folklore, such as those of Aitch, Sergio Mora, Nora Krug and John Broadley, the boundless imagination of Nicholas Stevenson, an interview with Tin Can Forest, the narratively powerful paintings of Dumontier & Farber, a review on the animated documentary genre, and an article written and illustrated by Irene Sánchez about the surprising origin of the most popular children’s fairy tales, among its contents.

El texto ancla la tradición oral y la historia de los pueblos en la forma escrita, pero la ilustración y la animación nos devuelven un relato desatado de sus corsés y recuperan la interpretación y la pátina personal que antaño aportaba el orador. Nuestro último número, con una impresionante portada del ilustrador alemán ATAK, cuenta entre sus contenidos con ilustraciones de inspiración folclórica como las de Aitch, Sergio Mora, Nora Krug y John Broadley, la desbordante imaginación de Nicholas Stevenson, una entrevista a Tin Can Forest, la pintura de fuerte potencialidad narrativa de Dumontier y Farber, una revisión del género del documental animado y un artículo escrito e ilustrado por Irene Sánchez sobre el sorprendente origen de los cuentos infantiles más populares.
