A special book. It is beautifully executed, with beautiful colors, and the artist draws you into another world with her sober atmospheric drawings. It is poetry in images, about dreams and the night and the elusive things and feelings that can occur there.
I'm happy with it.

Wonderful print, but because the measurements that were listed weren't correct, I had to cut a little bit off the white border to make it fit in the frame I bought. They immediately changed the listing information after I messaged them though! I really love the print <3
