On and island between dream and reality…
On an island between dream and reality, a young faun named Gabriel is fascinated by the extraordinary new creatures called unicorns. “A magical thing born of nature,” he muses… What mystery surrounds their birth? What place, what function do these mythical animals occupy in this imaginary world? Poetic and musical, The Day of the Unicorn approaches the fantastic from a peaceful, intimate angle. Each page is like a graphical haiku reflecting a feeling or idea rather than an event. The carefully crafted text supports this narrative idea and aims to awaken certain emotions buried in us.
Spun from the pages of his unfinished graphic novel series by noted artist and author Manuel Arenas, this poetic fairy tale appeals to the innocence in all of us, exploring the mystery of unicorns from a child’s perspective.
More than just a picture book, the degree of artistry and poetry elevates this volume to certifiable Art Book.
