MIFFY / NINTJE
The Netherlands boasts the largest book market in Europe that takes place in Deventer the first week of August. Apparently if you put all the stalls on one stretch, you will have 6 kilometers of books. I was so overwhelmed with the amount that I think I had an overdose, there was so much, that I didn’t know where to begin. I searched for 6 hours but became more and more indecisive, there was just too much choice, I had to drag myself away without a prize but just as I was leaving I found this book. I was at peace I could go home now.

Such a simple way to reinterpret a simple idea, and its definitely shot in Holland, completely flat with grey sky!
I fell in love with the illustrations, the shapes and colours, hundreds of pages illustrating people! I think the original copy of this book is french.
