The Book

The Book is an actual book done with oil paint and gel medium transfers on board and bound together in the coptic style. It features many stories, all just a few pages long, and tells the history of many of Avernyght's stories.

For a long time I wanted to tell some of the short stories that explain part of the world of Avernyght. The book was created as an assignment in a university class I was taking on book making. It is actually the final project from that class. It offered the perfect opportunity to tell the tales in a new style.

It covers the first people to inhabit Avernyght, how the world became dark, the creation of the dauls, the reason behind the Merish Wars, the Sisters, and the visitation of humans to Avernyght.
