Fata Morgana follows the adventure of a young boy through the landscapes of his imagination. He encounters and befriends creatures that are, like all mirages, born out of aspects of his own unconscious. Presented in vibrantly colored two-page panoramas, Fata Morgana is a feast for the eyes and mind.
“Fata Morgana as a wonderfully lunatic, psychedelic adventure, serving as an outstanding art book for illustrator Jon Vermilyea, and another staple in Koyama’s superb catalogue. An absolutely beautiful look into a child’s mind-bending dreams.” — Kevin Cortez, Drawn Words
