The book ‘Ballad’ (Een sprookje (nl)) by the French artist Blexbolex feels very compact and tactile in your hands. It is not large in terms of dimensions, but it certainly has volume. The paper of the cover is slightly embossed with ribs and is not laminated (fortunately). No layer of plastic between the reader and the paper.
The third and latest picture in our project of combining photography and illustration is also a portrait. A sweet little girl standing in front of a pastel coloured background holding a funny black moustache. The contrast of the girl’s innocence and the moustache intrigued me and so I wanted to develop this idea further.
