Nicoletta Costa presents her e-commerce Nicolettacostastore.com

Since 1980 Nicoletta Costa has been enchanting readers all over the world with a series of characters that are now part of the collective imagination of many generations of children: Nuvola Olga, Giulio Coniglio, Albero Giovanni, Strega Teodora, and Orso Blu are just some of the names born from the illustrator’s imagination and creativity and that have made her the most active and appreciated author in the field of children’s books, with more than 500 illustrated books published. The wonder and beauty of Nicoletta Costa’s characters has gone beyond paper works to come to life through television content, educational games and clothing lines.

The universe that comes to life in Nicoletta Costa’s works and stories is now transformed into high quality products that recall the high craftsmanship dedicated to the world of childhood on the new e-commerce site Nicolettacostastore.com.

The e-commerce site is a veritable collection of Nicoletta Costa’s current most prestigious collections, a reference point for discovering the products that bring the illustrator’s characters to life. In addition to the section dedicated to books and games by Gallucci, Franco Panini, Ludattica, El Edizioni and Mondadori Ragazzi, and to the collaborations including I Tessuti di Nic with Illustrabimbi for the clothing line, and with Arbos for La cartoleria di Nic, the site offers a series of handmade, customisable products for both children and adults, with prints of the legendary characters of the great illustrator. The products, behind which there is a real team of artisans focused on the use of quality, certified and sustainable materials, are designed to bring Nicoletta Costa’s characters to life outside of books.

The variety of collections on Nicolettacostastore.com is designed not only for the new generations of children, but also for the more adult fans, who have never stopped being children and still continue to be enchanted by the wonder and joy of the most iconic characters in the world of Nicoletta Costa: a section of the site is in fact also dedicated to fine art prints with a selection of drawings updated monthly and in different formats, ideal for continuing to dream even as adults.

Attention also goes to the teachers, who have always followed and appreciated the famous author and illustrator, with teacher’s smocks in the I Tessuti di Nic section, in collaboration with Illustrabimbi. In the coming months, following the launch, the site will be enriched with new references and products, made according to the same philosophy that guides the whole project, craftsmanship and quality.
