Die unglaubliche Schönheit der handgemachten, illustrierten Bücher von Lang Leav, unfassbar wundervoll. Sie schreibt: „Fairytale Villains live once upon a time in this exquisite Limited Edition cloth bound storybook. Each book is painstakingly hand-bound by Akina artist Lang Leav and comes with an unique hand-stamped number. Features stunning accordion design, button closure, ornate edging, rivet detailing and printed on linen paper. A little treasure for yourself or a friend to keep forever after.“

Das dritte Buch basiert auf der kleinen Meerjungfrau von Hans Christian Andersen. Bilder zu diesem Buch gibt es leider nur auf der Startseite ihrer Website, im Store finden sich noch Bücher 1 und 2. Und ein paar Puppenkleider, naja. Egal: die drei Bücher sind ganz, ganz wunderbar.

What is the concept behind Book #3?
Book #3 is a personal account of a tragic romance, based on ‘The Little Mermaid’ by Hans Christian Anderson. Themed around Valentine’s Day, the woeful tale is narrated through a series of haunting images and words, written and illustrated by Akina artist, Lang Leav.

What are the features of book #3?
Book #3 is printed on heavyweight art stock and features all new artwork, an artist’s statement, velvet ribbon, rivet detailing, fold out fine art print, a pop up cover, embossed pages and traditional hand-stitched binding.
