The White Nights

"The White Nights" is an illustrated edition of the short novel by Fiodor Dostoievski, published by Nórdica Libros in 2015.


The illustrations are a mix of monoprinting in oil painting, china ink and some details in coloured pencil.


As it s a very passionate romantic novel there is an abundance of intense red colour. The illustrations use a very simple colour symbolism, where a colour is used to portray the world of each character: red for the narrator, blue for Nastenka and yellow for her fiancé. As the book progresses the red colour occupies more and more space in each page.
