The ideal complement to book fairs

dPICTUS is a curated platform where picturebook publishers and agents promote their titles to international publishing professionals throughout the year, generating rights deals, business opportunities and new industry contacts to meet at book fairs.

View outstanding new releases and backlist titles in full from world-class publishers – including winners and nominees of the BolognaRagazzi Awards and the Bologna BOP ‘Best Children’s Publishers’ Prize. From 2018, we’re working with picturebook experts from different countries – curating outstanding titles on dPICTUS and selecting picturebooks to be exhibited at book fairs.

The dPICTUS platform is an excellent place for exposure and discovery. It gives all picturebooks – whether from high-profile or unfamiliar sources – the year-round opportunity to be seen by publishing professionals around the world.
