Author(s): Ayano Otani
A family of chameleons live in the wood: dad, mum and little Clement, who is colourless. He is transparent; all you can see are his big black eyes! One day he sets off in search of the perfect colour. To begin with, he's glad to be free and tries all the colours of the rainbow, but soon he begins to feel lonesome and becomes homesick for his mum and dad. Was his journey in search of identity useful? You'll find out by reading the story that is illustrated with fresh and original drawings, a true poem in images.
AYANO OTANI is a Japanese illustrator who is inspired by natural shapes that inform her work with utter simplicity and a lively monochromatic palette; and by the urban environment, which is expressed with increased detail. Her works in pencil, watercolour or paper, have been shown across Asia; she has also collaborated with fashion designers from France and Europe. For NuiNui she has illustrated L'album del mio cane and L'album del mio gatto (My dog's scrapbook and My cat's scrapbook to be published by NuiNui in 2018).
