Island Angels

„Island Angels“ on 2016. aastal ilmunud ja 25 kaunima raamatu tiitli pälvinud „Muhu Inglite“ ingliskeelne väljaanne. Suurepärane rahvuslik kingitus igale Eesti külalisele meie juubeliaastal.

„Island Angels“ („Muhu inglid“) is a picture book inspired by Estonian folklore. Muhu is the third largest island in Estonia and known for its abundant and singular folk traditions. The book holds the stories of seven women named “Angel”. Patterns from skirts, sweaters, quilts form the core elements of the book. The line structure of the images is reminiscent of embroidery. A modern comic book section tells the stories of the angels as a good-natured strip.
