my mother, uta lange, started about three years ago to write childrens books and discovered a great passion as
well as new vocation for herself again. the book titled »der geheimnisfischer von pinula« is her first written piece.
due to the very diverse crafted plot and characters i found her story very fascinating from the beginning. the analysis
of illustration in the framework of a diploma felt as an opportunity to familiarize myself with a new field and develop further. for me illustration has its greatest permission when it supports the fantasy and provides a framework where you also can move with your own ideas. in my research I especially focused on readability for children and the
balance of typography and the image.
