The cook of the king- picturebook


Dutch Title:
de brief over de kok van de koning & zijn neef (en de vrouw die het allemaal opschreef)

I made this picture book during my graduation at Art academy. It was the first time I made a book and i did everything myself; from illustrating, to re-writing the historical events into a story, to binding the books. With this prototype, I won the 'Picture This! international illustration competition! Because of that, the book has been exhibited at the Bologna Children's book fair 2018.

Down below you can see some miniatures of a small selection of the pages. I'm planning on selling new handmade versions of the book in the future, so feel free to send me a message if you would like one!
