    ☆ Fourth title published with the self-publishing label Red Boots  ☆

    ‘Corpo Celeste’ is a 20 pages picture book, written and illustrated by me (Anna Masini aka Ninamasina) and it’s a short ‘bildungsroman’ looking at life through the eyes of a little star from the deep blue sky.

    I have always been inspired by what’s above us: all shades of blue, the night starry sky and then the birds, the constellations, any story about stars and the celestial bodies.

    Original artworks are juxtapositions of ink paintings on paper and ink drawings on acetate and glass.
