Behind the scenes of the Illustration Library

Illustrator Michal Bonano and illustration curator Orna Granot share a love for illustrated children’s books. For years, they have been planning to meet and spend a day in the museum’s rare books storeroom and illustration archive in the basement of the Youth Wing – rifle through drawers and discover treasures, carefully flip through illustrated books from the 19th century and reunite with illustrated childhood heroes of beloved classics.

This year it might just happen… you are invited to come along on a shared personal journey of wandering and browsing behind the scenes of the Israel Museum illustration library.
