This near-wordless book is a call to action for slowing down and also creates a space to contemplate its beauty. Tokarczuk's mystical writing is apparent throughout this illustrated book even thouthit contains few words. The hypnotic illustrations of Concejo reward a deeper engagement as the branches and faces come to jittery life on the page. And it's really touching – A beautiful object.
