This book (Three
Children Look Towards the Sky)
was another of my collaborations with Guzi Mallia (no relation), with
whom I had done the
Hrejjef tas-Sharijiet (Enchanted
Guzi was pre-eminently a translator, and this too was a translation
from the book about the three children of Fatima by Paolo Liggeri.
The book had a full colour cover (which I did in pen and colour inks,
with the background gradient airbrushed with pre-mixed Badger
acrylics), and fourteen two-colour hand-separated illustrations
I also made a collage of the illustrations in line to be printed in
light blue on the inside covers and title page.
The book was published by David Bugelli in 1992 and was oversized at
275 by 195 mm.
I also produced the book, putting text on two columns for easier
reading, given its size.
