Tatyana Tolstaya Recommends series:   Suitcase Affair   The Bridge Over Griboedova Channel   Celestial Wives of the Meadow Mari  

Cover for Celestial Wives of the Meadow Mari by Denis Osokin

Overview   Process  

Task: to create a cover for another book in the series.

Celestial Wives of the Meadow Mari is a collection of works by Denis Osokin, poet, writer, screenwriter, philologist and folklorist. The genre of his unusual books is difficult to determine, just as it is difficult to tell apart poetry from prose, fairy tale from truth, what happens in the afterworld and what happens in reality, which also becomes quite unusual.

The cover


Denis Osokin draws odd pictures where the living and the dead are brought alive in a new incomprehensible way, as there is nothing dead in this world nor in the other.»
