The Universal Draught

Posted on

This week, another exciting project is meeting the world for the first time. The Universal Draught is the product of my transatlantic collaboration and friendship with author Elena Lebedeva-Fradkoff.

Elena’s stories in this collection take their inspiration from the realm of dreams, blending the real and the surreal to form a curious concoction of images and emotions. From Midzuorsi, the enigmatic talking kitten, and Sasha, a young woman with strange powers, to a grotesque circus of confusing horrors in ‘The Mutant’, and a colony of giant wasps and waspish humans, the stories and their characters are blown along on a draught through the universe of imagination.

The book also contains a collection of stunning, and equally eerie, dream-like illustrations by artist Paul Kulsha, which perfectly reflect the mood and tone of the stories.

‘The Universal Draught’ is not light, easy reading. It is a deliciously challenging read encouraging those who step inside its world to think, imagine and dream along with its motley cast of characters.
