I created this book to interrogate how colour affects storytelling through the mode of illustration. I made a book because they are a perfect way to showcase illustrations, I also have a website so it is accessible to anyone, anywhere in the world. This story is a German fairytale collected by the Brothers Grimm in the early 1820s. I have changed the story somewhat to be more inclusive but the concept remains the same. The story can be red positively or negatively depending on which side you read. This project has defined my relationship to colour and storytelling as an artist, designer and illustrator.
