stories from far and long ago





The stories we hear when we are young are the stories we remember, but we don’t know anything about the stories children hear in other countries. Possessing over a rich archive of tales from far and long ago, Mondiaal Narratief Erfgoed (MNE) tries to bring these stories to a broad public, both young and old. This fictive setting was the start for a school assignment, and it was my task to design the interior and exterior of the books, which would be released every three months. Functionality took the first place for me during this assignment, and I left unnecessary additions behind. Almost minimalistic by design, the result is a pure, small but easy to read booklet.
