Bajo las olas is a picture book written by Meritxell Martí & illustrated by Xavier Salomó.
This story is waiting for the reader at the bottom of the sea. By promoting a conversation between book cover and jacket, these two items turn into a powerful narrative element that reflects the authors’ invitation to dive deep, creates mystery and appeals to the reader’s curiosity – something is about to happen under the waves.
There is very little text on this book. In order to emphasize the narration, the text was placed following the character’s movements while adjusting the font size to the scene.
The endpapers were printed with a Pantone ink for an enhazed look.
