Book Concept

Knowledge, imagination and fascination are the keywords derived from The Little Prince.

Focusing on each individual keyword exploration, the book design focuses on the cartography of a summer solstice constellation and Africa being in the centre of the design as with how the prince is found in the Sahara desert.
