Maria Anglica Cartagena Varca - MA Show
The structure of the book is different than regular books - you have to discover the book to find out where the next pages are. In the book you might find an object such as a key, feel the texture of sand, or smell a flower. The materials used include wood, metal, found objects and different types of paper. Each page contains a different adventure from my life. The design has an antique feel, reflecting the fact that the stories are from my past. I chose to do the illustrations in the style of Japanese brush paintings, because this fits with my South-East Asian roots and also complements the antique design of the book.
