Anyone familiar with the films of Federico Fellini knows that he gave importance to dreams. The extent of that devotion is fully evident with the publication of "Il Libro dei Sogni" (The Book of Dreams). These sketches, mostly done with variously colored felt-tip pens, are a reminder that when Fellini went to Rome in 1939 to study law, he was sidetracked and spent two years as a cartoonist for a satirical publication.
