Her partnership with Susi Weigel is unparalleled: in the books by the duo the boundaries between text and illustration become blurred. What demands are made today on the genre of children’s book illustration? And how can illustrated children’s book survive against competition from the world of digital images?

Panelists: Hildegard Gärtner, Jungbrunnen Verlag; Renate Habinger, illustrator; Pierre Thomé, illustrator, head of the illustration department at the Lucerne University
