Illustrator Natalya Balnova created this playfully illustrated book that features abstract animal images. The book uses a simple dual-toned color scheme of dark blue and bright yellow tones. The images resemble hieroglyphics of creatures that are accompanied with simplified captions.

This book is a unique piece of art that features hand-drawn illustrations and hand-written text. Its complexity seems minimal yet each of its images projects an interesting perspective on animals. For example, there is one image that shows a splatter of yellow paint with a blue koala bear in front of it. This image reads "animal against the sun" and is followed by others that are simple and eye-catching.

This style of art is commonly seen in Natalya Balnova's work. While this particular project has been turned into a book, the artist's other pieces have been displayed on fabric bags, vinyl record covers and greeting cards.
