Ever After

So the past few months have been leading up to this:

 My master's final project, Ever After, is a book about love. And a lot of other things, like fate and mythology and Shakespeare, but mostly about love. The Mysteries of Harris Burdick was a huge inspiration, as was Paris je t'aime. Basically this book is a mash-up of all my favourite things - you know, like raindrops and roses and whiskers on kittens.

And it has illustrations, of course. Twelve of them, in fact, and each one has a titles and some text, and a story behind it - but it's up to you to decide what the story is. Don't worry, there's a typewritten (!) introductory poem to help you along, too.

It's a weird book, but I like it. I'm proud of it. I hope you like it too.

First page - The Glass Boy


  1. Indeed it shows you are very proud of it, and although I've only seen a little bit of it, I'm inclined to risk saying that you have a very good reason to be!

    I would love to know more about the idea that led you to this and about the process of actually making and printing the book since I'm clueless about how that works (although if you don't want to share some of your magic tricks, it's okay :P).

    About the poem (the 'hug guitars' and the ebay rhymes are truly majestic!), it kind of reminds me of Shel Silverstein's work. I don't know if you're familiar with it, he worked mostly on children's books but it's definitly worth a look. Your poem mostly reminds me of this one:
    "If you are a dreamer,come in.
    If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar, a hoper, a prayer, a magic-bean-buyer.
    If you're a pretender, come sit by my fire, for we have some flax-golden tales to spin.
    Come in! Come in!"

    Sorry If I write to much, I always have the tendency to do that!

  2. Are you really selling it on eBay? I might like to read it!

  3. I would so, so buy this.
