These Minimal, Black + White Illustrations Are for Book Lovers
There are so many talented artists from around the world turning to books as inspiration for their design—from Jungho Lee’s surreal and dreamy literary scenes to Marina Luz’s humorous book covers based on foggy memories.
Much to our delight, we recently discovered these pieces by Henn Kim, an artist based in Seoul, South Korea.
Kim’s works are simultaneously surreal and minimal, sticking to a black and white palette—to create her art, she prefers to use a combination of pencil sketches and digital tools.
Take a look at some of our favorites:
Take Me to Wonderland
Read All About You
Drenched Through My Mind
Reading is Dreaming with Your Eyes Open
