TheFLR. The Florentine Literary Review is looking for a talented illustrator to add light and shade to its fourth issue.





The bilingual literary magazine’s editorial board is selecting the short story authors and poets who will delight the pages of the fourth edition of the publication, but we’re missing a key ingredient. The illustrator of TheFLR will be a central character, an author in his or her own right, whose pen or pencil will etch the diverse stories of the magazine according to his or her personal style and own take on the theme of Landscape.


The project has been met with critical acclaim in Italy and internationally.
