The Colours of Bulgaria

Picture Book


There are many traditions and festivals in Bulgaria that are often misunderstood by tourists. For example, Nestinarstvo, Bogoyavlenie (Epiphany) and Kukerstvo

How might I show the variety of lively and vibrant holidays and festivals in a playful way?


A picture book that explains the most celebrated traditions and their meaning. The colours of Bulgaria aims to showcase the beauty of the festivals it teaches children about various cultural events and it urges their curiosity. All of the illustrations in the book are hand drawn with pencils and watercolours, afterwards they are digitised and printed on high quality paper.
