“Sometimes, the motivation for creating a book can come from the conditions of the book’s structural form and not only from literary subjects.” Says Suzy Lee about the genesis of her beautifully illustrated children book Shadow.

The exquisite illustrations were created using analog techniques such as cut and paste and spray paint. “Spray paint is a very flexible medium.” Lee says, “When sprayed on paper that has been fixed in place, the spray offers clear outlines; when the paper is slightly lifted when spraying, the shadow’s movement and perspective become remarkable.”

Published by Chronicle Books Shadow is about “A dark attic. A light bulb. An imaginative little girl.” Stunning in their simplicity, Lee’s illustrations, in just two shades of color, present an adventure that begins and ends with the click of a light bulb.

Suzy Lee graduated from Seoul National University with a BFA in Painting, and she holds a Masters in Book Arts at Camberwell College of Arts in London. She’s created a selection of award-winning picturebooks which have been published all around the world.
