Collected fairy-tales "Winter" by Anna Astly.

In 2016 I met a wonderful writer Anna Astly. As often today, it happened on the Internet. Meeting turned into friendship and cooperation! Throughout the year, Anna posted every day in her Instagram account (@anna.astly) mini-stories, I began to read it and fell in love with her style, because it was so harmoniously combining with my sense of fairy-tales. Anna offered to illustrate her book, and I gladly agreed. Anna's book, designed an illustrated by me, was published at the end of 2016. This is a collection of stories for every day of winter. Book has a solid colored cover, size – 115x155 mm, 199 pages, 6 illustrations and graphics. Every story begins with a florid letter. Together with the author, we have chosen a graphical view of images, and I suggested the variant with letters. It seemed to me that it will perfectly complement the essence of fairy-tales.
You can order book at the online-store  (book in Russian language)

Now we continue to collaborate on another project. In this case, I have already asked Anna to write fairy-tales for the planned book project. Slightly lifting the veil of mystery: it is a book in which we want to achieve complete harmony between illustration and text. The keynote will be flowers, plants, author’s fantasy, myths and legends, emotions and portraits. Illustrations (watercolor and bright) and texts (fascinating and intriguing) you will see and read for the first time! The book is designed for children of school age and adults. Coming soon!
