Hanneriina Moisseinen


Published by: Kreegah Bundolo
Printed and bound by: Jelgava Printing House
Graphic design: Hans Nissen
Illustration and cover design: Hanneriina Moisseinen
Paper: Munken Pure 130g
Typeface: Arial

Sensitive pencil art creates a shocking contrast with the militant topic of this graphic novel, and the same excitement lives in the interaction of the drawings and the properly grey photos, set page- or even spread-wide. The fictional and emotional content of the panels gain from the harsh reality of the photos. The soft, natural-white paper suits the drawing technique, and the form is right for this graphic novel.

Reproduced by: Tommi Musturi
Graphic design and illustration: Tommi Musturi
Paper: Amber Graphic 130g, Oria Cream 140g

Colourfully pop-artish cover suggests but does not yet reveal the fireworks of bright colours and inventive visual ideas to come. The pacing of the graphic novel is organic: the book breathes freely, on every opening. Seamless combination of improvisation and finalisation.
