This book project was my final project for my B.Des in Shenkar College of Engineering and Design, Israel, guided by the Illustrator Batia Kolton and the typographer Avner Haberfeld. "Mistress of the Copper Mountain" is a folklore story by the Russian author Pavel Bazhov. The story tells of a beautiful lizard woman who lives in the Ural Mountains, and symbolizes materiality and supreme power to which we always strive even if we already got everything we need in our lives. The story follows a hero's confrontation with these temptations. The book also contains three pop-up spreads which were created entierly by me, and were a chalenging but great experience. All the illustartion was done with ink and rapidograph 0.2, and the coloring was done in Procreate. Overall 20 spreads.
The project was born out of my desire to share more of my Slavic culture in Israel.
