A book that has the look of an old photo album, one of those albums where a person would keep all the pictures of her own life. This is what happens in this peculiar story: at the beginning Death is giving the last meal to an old lady; while she puts the spoon in her mouth, Death tells her the story of a princess who left her palace looking for the place where the grass grows greener. The princess crossed the desert, encountered many perils when she finally reached the place where the grass grows greener. She decides to spend her whole life there. The landscape where the princess’ adventures take place is in fact a mouth. This story is illustrated with the expressionist photo-montages created by Nafría following the tradition of Grete Stern. The images are in black and white, introducing one single colour towards the end: the green grass. A book for untamed spirits and people who wish to get in contact with a different way of telling a story.
