The Death and the Little Girl
Handcrafted and handpainted art book by Eva Czifra (2009)
I decided to share the photos of my diploma work, a fully handcrafted and handpainted one-of-a-kind art book, after I have visited the exhibition of Katalin Szegedi, whose works were my inspirations when working on my book.
Diploma work – Nyugat-Magyarországi Egyetem – University of West Hungary
Rajz szak – Arts major, 2009 – 2010
The book consists of original handpainted illustrations on 90 lb watercolour paper, and various materials, such as green velvet, paper scraps and ribbons.
Theme: English coutryside, with an extraordinary (redhead) little girl. The Death is a beautiful woman in long, dark cloak, covered with stars.
Inspiration: Katalin Szegedi, the amazing Hungarian illustrator
Original story: The Death and the Little Girl by Manfred Kyber
