TALL TALES & SHORT STORIES
Book Design / Branding / Editorial Design / Illustration


“We have been always been puzzled by the wonders of the universe, using our imagination as an attempt to understand. Like out ancestors were sensitive to the fears and uncertainties of their time, we too are dependent on our imaginative minds to explain what is beyond our knowledge.”

Tall Tales & Short Stories is a fictional exhibition to take place at the British Library. The exhibition aims to encourage its viewers to rekindle their imaginative side, something that may have been lost in adulthood, through the idea of myth At first focusing on British myths, including those familiar to all and stories much lesser known, the exhibition and accompanying book explore what a "myth" is, how they are formed and just why they are important to us.

The main design outcome is a 124-page book written/designed to accompany the exhibition as well as being a stand-alone source. I extensively researched the theme of myth, compiling and writing about 9000 words of content for the book. I also created all of the illustrations for the book, including those that go alongside the tale extracts and the more playful sayings – these are also used on postcards that would be sold in the library shop and on advertising.
