Product description


"The visual beauty of this book is apparent from the moment you pick it up and riffle through its pages. Fior's delicate paintwork shows what comics and comics alone can do: it's hard to imagine any cinematographer in the world coming up with as gorgeous a look for their narrative." --Broken Frontier

"It all comes together with Fior's absolutely gorgeous artwork. In his renderings of Italy, Norway, and Egypt, he is able to bring the physical properties of the locations together with the emotional realities that surround his characters, and their experiences with the world captured in swashes of various color that define this collusion of spaces, both in the head and outside of it." --Comics Beat
