What does BA.BO.KO stand for?
It stands for “Barn”, “Bok” and “Konst” which mean “children”, “book” and “art”. The gallery was started with the belief that picture books are pieces of art. More than that: they very often represent a child’s first meeting with literature and the visual arts.
What is a giclée print?
“Giclée” pronounced [zhee-klay] is a term coined in 1991 by printmaker Jack Duganne for fine art digital prints made on inkjet printers.
The prints on baboko.com are printed with archival quality inks on Hahnemühle fine art paper. The giclée printing process provides better colour accuracy than other means of reproduction. Archival quality ensures that the prints are light-fast and non water soluble.
Our illustrators are involved in the whole process, from choosing illustration and format, kind of paper, setting the edition and reviewing the proofs. BA.BO.KO’s prints are produced by an award winning printer based in the UK and all come with a certificate of authenticity.
