Illustrations for belletristic books have a completely different challenge than illustrations for products or services. While the latter illustrate or concretize a subject, book illustrations aim to inspire and stimulate readers' imagination. The approach to the realization of such illustrations varies accordingly. Book illustrations require not only a deep knowledge of the content to be illustrated, but also an analysis of the literary genre, the structure of the readership, the publisher's standards and the author's imaginations.
This applies all the more to the illustration of children's books. Is it a reading book or a self-reading book? How old are the readers? Is it demanding or entertaining? Is it a fairy tale or a novel? Is it read more by girls or more by boys?
This concept study is a story about "perspectives" for children of reading age, which we have illustrated using the so-called counterproof technique. We further develop the random structures created by the color proof into fantastic landscapes, figures, animals, and mythical creatures that only shoot themselves at second glance. The artistic possibilities thus inspire not only our imagination in the design, but above all the fantasy world of the young readers.
