The Secret of the Tattered Shoes illustrated by Ehsan Abdollahi

I write to try and help myself to understand the world around me.

The Secret is very much a book like this. It’s a re-telling of the Twelve Dancing Princesses, but with a twist, and the illustrations are by Ehsan Abdollahi, an illustrator from Iran whose work I adore.

Pages shown below are works in progress. The type layout and maybe even font need to be worked on, but I love the illustrations, and wanted to give a taste of what is to come. If you click on the images you might be able to read the words.

The Secret will be published in September 2019 by Tiny Owl.
