Each region has its own set of cultural customs, but many of those traditions are currently endangered with modern generations as Ella Frances Sanders captures in her drawings. The illustrations showcase popular customs from a variety of countries that are currently under the risk of becoming obsolete in the hopes of bring awareness to them so they can be revived.

Customs and traditions are the lifeblood of a culture, acting as the foundation of the nation through practices such as art, food, language and ceremonial events. Sanders' illustrations depict some of these traditions that are currently fading amongst modern youth in the hopes that they provoke a revival of them. For example one image showcases the wooden moveable type printing famed in Chinese culture and another oil wrestling in Turkey.
