Fata Morgana by Jon Vermilyea / 44-page full-color soft-cover (stapled) with dust jacket, 9.4 x 12.3 inches (it's big!), from Mansion Press in France. (This book was originally published by Koyama Press in 2013 in a smaller format.)
Fata Morgana follows the adventure of a young boy through the landscapes of his imagination. He encounters and befriends creatures that are, like all mirages, born out of aspects of his own unconscious. Presented in vibrantly colored two-page panoramas, Fata Morgana is a feast for the eyes and mind.
