Product Description

“It was February in Paris. The plan was to spend three days in the Montparnasse Cemetery. There was one day with rain, the temperature was low. However, instead of bleakness, there was an unexpected sense of warmth.

The reckless web of tree branches, words inscribed on the tombstones, and the statues in eternal silence… When making sketches of this place with a red colored pencil, Wong realized he was, in fact, illustrating a reflection of his state of mind. He then had the sketches published in Where She Sleeps after returning home from the trip.

Wong Sze Chit is an illustrator from Hong Kong who is as well the co-founder of the local independent bookshop “Book B”. Before setting off for his trip to France in February 2017, he had already decided to spend three days in a row in Montparnasse Cemetery, which is the final resting place of one of his favorite writers, Marguerite Duras. Wong always enjoys strolling around in cemeteries. A few years ago, he also visited Kafka’s tomb in the Czech Republic.”
