One of the most striking features of the Project is the beautiful artwork commissioned exclusively for this work. Mariagrazia Orlandini, an award-winning artist from Italy, was contracted following an extensive search and review of over 3200 artists’ works from around the world.


What a process it was! Largely through email and sometimes a translator or two, we accomplished it!  The project glows with her unique, ever-so-enchanting paintings–not only for the cards, but for the self-help symbols, game designs, and guidebook.


Grazia has previously illustrated numerous children’s books and educational materials and has been featured at the highly prestigious International children’s Book Fair, Bologna.


Her awards include:


2007 "Awards dell'illustrazione italiana"
