The second collection from Ilya Kuvshinov, the illustrator with magical colors

Following the worldwide success of Momentary (9784756248756), we are proud to present this second collection from Ilya Kuvshinov. This book collects popular artworks the artist posted on social media, which were created after Momentary was published. After the success of Momentary, Ilya has gained popularity and has done some exhibitions and commercial works. One of the most prestigious jobs Ilya was offered was as the character and visual designer for the anime ¡ÈBirthday Wonderland¡É (directed by Keiichi Hara; Crayon Shin-chan series). This talented illustrator, who was influenced by many Japanese artists, now has 1.5 million followers worldwide on Instagram, and is established as an influencer of other illustrators around the world.

As in the previous title, this book uses special printing technology to reproduce the beautiful colors of Ilya¡Çs CG illustrations, enhancing the possibility of 4-color printing. Since social media is the main platform where Ilya presents the works, the previous book was in a square format. But this time, to have more variety and include illustrations that are not a square size, we have produced this book in a larger format.
