novel by contemporary writer Mei Feng (Elena Yezhova): Nartang publishing house, 2022
How can you convey the atmosphere of mysticism and fleeting beauty?
With the help of ink - my favorite material - and symbols. Threads - symbols of fate - stretch through the entire narrative and appear at key moments and wind into a ball at the end ..
I chose a light, sketching style of illustrations that is close to me and combined hand drawings (textures) and digital ones.
The book has screensavers for each chapter, as well as small illustrations inside the text (given below). The layout is a cross between non-fiction (there are historical references in the book) and modern light prose.
