Have you ever dreamt of being a mermaid? I did. Once, when I was a kid in love with Disney's Little Mermaid. The second time happend last month when I was reading a wonderful Book of Speculation by Erika Swyler.
Thanks to Gemma's Capdevila dreamy, fairytale illustration we can dive into the world where mermaids live, the ones that are in love with the stars in the sky.
We can also dig into the ground or go up the trees to see melancholic animals sleeping or thinking about... about what? Gemma's also paints stories of little towns - cosy, but also somehow melancholic, somehow autumnal, dreamy, nostalgic. She uses lots of blue and brown. There are constellations in the water and waves in the sky.
