Nightfall in the City and the Country

Two sequential spreads showing the deepening blue skies of sunset, from Yozora o Miage yo, a picture book for Japanese publisher Fukuinkan Shoten about discovering the stars of the night sky (2016). Twilight is absolutely my favourite time of the day, that fleeting time when everything changes - the sun is just disappearing over the horizon, leaving a deep blue sky, and the first stars start to come out. All the lights come on, but it's not yet night. I find that shifting, mysterious time of the day endlessly fascinating.
