The celebration for the 2021 BOP – Bologna Prize for the Best Children’s Publishers of the Year is a key part of the BCBF Online Special Edition. The BOP Prize is awarded each year to showcase editorial projects, professional skills and intellectual qualities of work from publishing houses all over the world. Let’s meet Tragaluz, winner for Central/South America!
Tragaluz Editores is a Colombian independent publisher. Since 2005 Tragaluz publishes books that attract readers by their contents and design, books in which every detail matters. Tragaluz believes that a book in someone’s hands can open an experience to all senses. During the last years the publishing house has been focusing on children's and young adult literature. Starting from a good text, a collection of remarkable illustrations, and a unique design, Tragaluz looks to form lifelong readers. If a great book reaches a child, it’s likely that he or she will go for another one after reading it. And as a character of the novel The painter under the sink says: “The last page of a book is the first of the next one”.
