MELINDA, written by Neil Gaiman and illustrated by Dagmara Matuszak. MELINDA is a haunting tale of a young girl living alone in a world of rot and decay—her only companions are the feral animals that roam the deserted ruins of an unnamed city.
It's cold today. Melinda saw
or thought she saw, a horde of crows
all scarlet and viridian.
that flew like parrots past the bridge;
she rubbed her eyes and they were gone
the road was empty. Only domes
that trundled thoughtfully along
intent on something, and they pass
like beetles made of steel and glass.
Every page of this volume features the truly beautiful illustrations of Dagmara Matuszak. The black-and-white illustrations bring to life the bleak landscape that Melinda calls home. The color illustrations, each one separately printed and hand-laid onto the pages, are both lush and jarring at the same time.
