This enchanting textbook for children is thoroughly illustrated with black-and-white detailed drawings. Pictures flow from opening to opening in an unhurried continuous stream from the recto pages onwards: plants, animals, mushrooms and insects invite the reader to get acquainted with the nightworld. Hand-crafted typography, occasionally deliciously fluffy, stays in context and preserves the readability. The cover is delightfully nighty in black calico and silver foil.

The unusual choice to have the wind as a main character gives us a firm and stylish rendition of a curious topic. A conversation between pastels and few other shades carries the reader immediately to its own, charming world. Sparse text finds its place effortlessly. A unique story that calls the reader to return. Harmony and excitement interlaced, rich in nuances.

A bestiary that seduces the reader into the secrets of ink drawings. The loosely spun, spattered and scraped animal characters by Laura Merz excellently link the ancient art of ink with the present day. Large format and the powerful yet calm layout work well together. The style inspires.
