Maria Simavilla: the artist behind the official poster of the Madrid Book Fair 2023

María Simavilla , the talented artist who created the TERRACEO for THE MADRILEÑER , surprised the public by presenting its impressive illustration entitled "Ventanas de la Villa" as the official poster for event number 82 of the Madrid Book Fair 2023 . The exciting launch took place last Tuesday, April 12 at the prestigious Instituto Cervantes.

This captivating poster has been acclaimed by public opinion and pays a well-deserved tribute to the essence of " open and diverse Madrid ", a place where the reading possibilities are as varied as the different types of readers who inhabit it. The illustration portrays one of the iconic Madrid facades that inspires María so much during her walks through the city.

Maria Simavilla, together with THE MADRILEÑER , has been a prominent presence at the Madrid Book Fair 2023, generating great enthusiasm among attendees.

At THE MADRILEÑER , we are the biggest fans of this emblematic literary event, which celebrates its 90th anniversary this year. For this reason, last year we turned to Rut Pedreño to bring to life a special project called BESTIARIO , a space dedicated to transmitting the essence of the fair through Social Networks.

This week is just a small sample of the talent and dedication that THE MADRILEÑER artists demonstrate day after day. We feel privileged to be able to share with the world their unique vision of Madrid through these iconic covers.
