Voices of Creatures

Voices of Creatures


Background: Five front cover illustrations for the paperback edition of »Hints for Life«, 6 milion copies of the best-seller by the popular Japanese writer Hiroyuki Itsuki. A total of five volumes are being sold, one every month for five months. These are essays full of hints about the quality of life. So I chose five creatures that are perhaps more powerful and wiser than human beings – swan, wolf, cat, napoleon fish and whale – as if they are talking to us.

Statement of the jury

Five extraordinary, beautiful illustrations animate the title page of the paper book edition of »Hints for Life«, the best-seller by the famous Japanese writer Hiroyuki Itsuki. The five creatures more powerful and wiser than people form the impressive cover of essays about a better life.
