About the Project

When the publisher commissioned the artwork for the project, we discussed the visual style of the interior illustrations and opted for a vintage feeling, vaguely inspired by XV-XVI century European woodcut art and cartography, especially the famous Carta marina by Olaus Magnus.

The chapter headers, unfortunately, didn’t make it to the printed book.
