The Little Book of Dad

by Alain Cancilleri, Emma Altomare
Give Dad the gift of love, with this charmingly illustrated collection of quotes. It's perfect for Father’s Day.

“I have learned that when a newborn child squeezes his father’s finger for the first time with his tiny fist, he has him trapped forever.” —Gabriel Garcia Marquez
He’s a playmate, an accomplice, and a hero to his kids: he’s dad. And this gift book, filled with beautiful sentiments, pays tribute to all he is and does for his family. Along with the stunning, graphic illustrations, it includes quotes from Gandhi, Balzac, Freud, Joseph Heller, and Sophie Kinsella, as well as from actors like Liam Neeson and Pierce Brosnan.

Alain Cancilleri graduated from the Venturi Art Institute in Modena and attended the Faculty of Arts and Philosophy at the University of Parma, majoring in Art History. Cancilleri has taken several illustration courses, especially at the International School of Illustration in Sàrmede, held by Jozef Wilkon, Linda Wolfsgruber, and Anna Castagnoli. He worked as a graphic designer in Tuscany for several years and now lives in Faenza.

Emma Altomare graduated in Communication Studies from the University La Sapienza in Rome and attended a postgraduate Master’s program in publishing that led her to the Italian publishing scene. She has worked with various publishers, including White Star.
