The Cloud Seamstress

Text from Emma Anticoli Borza
Illustrations from Daniela Tieni

Anna makes clouds. She slips something into each one which is most precious to her: her memories. She keeps her clouds in a cage. Some of them are dark and stormy, others are light and colourful.

Anna knows that her time will come soon. “Soon, you will be free!” she tells them.

A lovely metaphorical and finely executed book which gently talks about the end of life.
