TRESLETTRES is a collaboration of three visual artists: Tom Wieja, Jakub Chwieszczenik and Bart Jekiel. We make our debut in print with a selection of three illustrated stories.
Following classic tales: Bluebeard, Red Shoes and Vasalisa have been re-interpreted for a mature audience and collected in a single graphic novel called STORIES IN RED.
The idea for STORIES IN RED came from the successful "Exquisite Corpse" competition set by Dave McKean (see Luna portal and Luna Facebook page); the creative juices started flowing then and we enjoyed the creative process so much that we have decided to go bigger!
We have re-created three classic tales by the means of free thought association, improvisation and symbolism all wrapped up in a sequential storytelling form.
Using various techniques of illustration, graphic design, photography and photo manipulation we bring our visions to life in this 70+ page book which will be a limited Kickstarter edition of 300 signed and numbered copies.
Our goal at TRESLETTRES is to get enough funds via Kickstarter to give YOU the book which will be a pleasure to hold in YOUR hands, so even the smallest contribution will be welcome with a heartfelt thank you!
Before we can show you ‘the real thing’ we have printed out couple of mockup copies. Take a look at the photos for a little taste of things to come!
Our giclee prints are made on Hahnemuehle Photo Rag fine art paper (308gsm) with Epson UltraChrome pigment inks. This provides for durable gallery standards and over 100 yrs colour guarantee. Prints are exact copies of book pages at their original size 30x30 cm (12x12 inch). You may choose your own print(s) from our selection of 8 (see photo). Prints are signed but not limited.
