Check out Derli Barraso’s first graphic novel, Caravans. We fell in love with the color, the creativity, and several of the spreads (see my personal favorite below. Love the mirror image. Love the tree.)
According to Derli, each page has its own story and all the stories are part of the baggage being carried along in this narrative “caravan.” Where the story takes you is entirely up to you, but that’s the beauty of this artistic journey, or any piece of art for that matter.
Derli has taught photography and kinetic art at an art school in Brazil and has worked as a professional photographer, so his skills in design are pretty honed. Still, he used BookSmart to make his book and says he found it easy and intuitive. Derli has more than a few Blurb books to his credit and Caravans is by far his most experimental book. He promises there are more in the series to come. We’re happy to be along for the ride. Thanks, Derli.
