[MARS] Gallery is proud to present over 30 illustrations from Graeme Base’s newest book, The Jewel Fish of Karnak
To be officially launched
Wednesday 3 July, 6-8pm
“I made a trip to Egypt and it was incredibly inspirational. The choice of characters for the Jewel Fish of Karnak came from the history of Egypt itself and the Ancient Egyptians’ fabulous mythology. The more you learn about Egypt the
more fascinating it is!” – Graeme Base
Complete with hieroglyphics, sparkling jewels and an ingenious mechanical device built into the back of the book, this is a cautionary tale set amongst the wonders of an ancient world, from the bestselling and highly acclaimed author of such classics as Animalia, The Eleventh Hour and The Legend of the Golden Snail.
