Description

Robinson Crusoe, Story in images by Ajubel based on Daniel Defoe’s book” has received some of the most important international illustration awards, including the “Bologna Ragazzi Award” (the Pulitzer as regards the illustration of young peoples´ books).

His particular version of the life of the most famous castaway in universal literature has already been published in Spain, Mexico, France and South Korea.

In the words of the Bologna jury:

Audaciously, Ajubel takes on the traditional marriage of text and image, raising it to a new and higher level. What appears at first to be a departure from tradition proves on closer inspection to be just the opposite.
For with the captivating force of signs and colours, Ajubel has created not merely illustrations but iconic images. The scenes that follow one after another are a concentrate of emotion, a phantasmagoria of anxieties, fears and expectations.
The classic narrative is here, alive and vibrant with all the dream-like intensity of Defoe's original text. Ajubel's work is also an admirable teaching tool, as it compels us to look more selectively at our image-saturated world.
This is a unique book that opens up new pathways for our understanding.

-The adaptation of Ajubel´s version of Robinson Crusoe for ipad has kept as closely as possible to the printed edition. Some scenes have been reframed and a few more details have been incorporated to enhance this story in images even further. 

For those not acquainted with this classic tale, there is a brief introductory summary in various languages (Spanish, English, Italian, French, Chinese and Korean).

Robinson Crusoe, Una novela en imágenes de Ajubel inspirada en la obra de Daniel Defoe”, ha obtenido algunos de los más importantes premios internacionales de ilustración, algunos tan prestigiosos como el Bologna Ragazzi Award (el Pulitzer de ilustración de libros infantiles juveniles)
Esta versión de la historia del náufrago más conocido de la literatura universal ha sido ya editada en España, México, Francia y Corea.
En palabras del jurado del Bologna...
“Ajubel ha puesto en entredicho, de una manera valiente, el tradicional vínculo entre texto e imagen, elevándolo a un nuevo y superior nivel.
Lo que en un primer momento parece una desviación de la tradición resulta ser, tras una observación más detenida, justo lo contrario.
Mediante la fuerza cautivadora de signos y colores, Ajubel ha creado imágenes icónicas que son algo más que ilustraciones. La secuencia de escenas es un concentrado de emoción, una fantasmagoría de temores, miedos y esperanzas. La narración clásica se nos ofrece en este libro viva y vibrante, con toda la ensoñadora intensidad del texto original de Defoe.
El trabajo de Ajubel es también una admirable herramienta docente por cuanto nos obliga a mirar de forma más selectiva nuestro mundo saturado de imágenes.
Se trata pues de un libro extraordinario que abre nuevas vías a nuestro entendimiento”.
