Five Amazing Treasures Exhibition
We all remember our first ABC book. Many will remember the rhymes; some will even be able to recount the stories verbatim. Everyone remembers what the book looked like. Many learners have a visual memory. Illustrations also offer inspiration, surprises and combinations of things that would not be possible with texts or photographs. This makes learning more enjoyable and exciting.
The Finnish Association of Illustrators and the Päivälehti Newspaper Museum have brought together contemporary textbook illustrators and the books and learning materials they have illustrated for the “Five amazing treasures” exhibition. Interior designer Leena Carelse has designed the colorful and interactive world of the exhibition based on the illustrations. To complete the experience writer Jukka Laajarinne has scripted a storyline that will take visitors to Lapland, America and to the past centuries. And what are the five amazing treasures? That will be revealed at the end of the adventure!
Illustrations for the exhibition have admitted Carlos Da Cruz, Ossi Hiekkala, Maija Hurme, Lotta Kauppi, Katri Kirkkopelto, Johanna Lumme, Salli Parikka Walhlberg, Sanna Pellicioni, Ossi Pirkonen and Harri Tarkka.
