A bookmark commissioned by Diseñadores Gráficos Bolivia.
It was a delightful opportunity to work with one of my favorite author’s short stories, ‘The Fauna of Mirrors‘, from The Book of Imaginary Beings. I sometimes delight in sharing this with my students, and have for many years. The text, a selection from the larger piece (see link above), reads as follows:
“The first to awaken will be the Fish. Deep in the mirror we will perceive a very faint line and the color of this line will be like no other color. Later on, other shapes will begin to stir. Little by little they will differ from us; little by little they will not imitate us. They will break through the barriers of glass or metal and this time will not be defeated. Side by side with these mirror creatures, the creatures of water will join the battle.”
I am so grateful to be included in this graphic friendship. Special thanks to Susana Machiao for her kind invitation. ¡Un fuerte abrazo desde Powderhorn!
