Of Dragons and Cranes (Book Arts)

Of Dragons and Cranes is an illustrated art book featuring an adaption of the Scandinavian folk tale ”King Lindworm”.

With loose pages and a near to A3 format, the aim is to challenge the traditional reading experience, bring more thought to the viewing of the illustrations and create a tactile ritual of storytelling.

The cover is made out of laser cut birch plywood (oak stained) and mirror gold acrylic.

The story and illustrations are now also featured in a traditional hardback format.
