A book of umbrellas

This is a book about the history of umbrellas with lots of related stories, puzzles and hands-on activities. As the author, I did the research for it, using sources from Ancient Egyptian stelas to modern patent documents.

The illustrations are done in ink and pen, with color added digitally and background hand drawn in watercolor.

The book was published by “A Walk Through History” publishing house.

The illustrations for the book obtained a diploma of “The image of the book” contest (Russia, 2022).
