Thumbelina | Anita

  • Rania Qaddoura

Thumbelina : Anita is a typographic artistic book that follows the coming of age story, about a little thumb-sized girl – Thumbelina written by Hans Christian Andersen in 1846. Within the book I found there are parallels between how Thumbelina must overcome an old toad and then a mouse, who both try to arrange marriages for her, and the reality of young child brides, in this case the wedding of 16 year old Anita from Kagati village, just outside Kathmandu Valley, Nepal.
