    Task: to illustrate a book and publish it in electronic format.

    Cemetery Stories is a collection of essays about six famous cemeteries and detective stories that take place on them. The main feature of the book is that the essays are written by Grigory Chkhartishvili, and the detective stories come from Boris Akunin’s pen.

    To illustrate the book, the studio together with the author launched a contest: readers were asked to send in their own photos of cemeteries, the best of which would be included in the e-book. Eventually, more than two hundred pictures made it into the book.
