Journey on a Cloud : A Children's Book Inspired by Marc Chagall Hardback
Illustrated by Elise Mansot
This book tells the story of the postman Zephyr, who lives in a little blue village in the mountains where nothing ever changes.
A dreamer hoping for adventures, he travels on a cloud, embarking on a fantastic airborne journey that takes him to distant and colourful lands.
Eventually Zephyr falls to earth and meets a beautiful young woman.
Together they return to the postman's home village which is now transformed in Zephyr's eyes and begin their exciting new life together.
Inspired by Chagall's masterpiece, a world of colour and imagination awaits the readers of this book.
Paintings based on Chagall's striking palette and elegant lines help tell a simple yet poetic story.
The book includes a gorgeous reproduction of Chagall's masterpiece 'Les Maries de la Tour Eiffel' ('The Bride and Groom of the Eiffel Tower'), illustrating a journey of words and pictures, and introducing young readers to the work of one of the most popular artists of the twentieth century.
