Anubis, paintings by Joanna Karpowicz / ISBN 9780993395161 / An attractive little 48-page hardcover, 8 x 6 inches, published by Centrala (UK)
"There’s a mystery suspended in each of these intriguing paintings, pulling you into its depths. The figure of Anubis seems to be an outsider waiting to participate in each painting’s story – like yourself as an observer of the image. There’s an entire narrative waiting for the viewer in every picture, and the strangeness of each scene provokes questions in your mind as to what is (or could be) unfolding. You want to step into each painting and discover its secrets." --Derk Brazell, Varoom Publisher
