Against the Wind

Text & Illustrations by Inna Karamyan

A lyrical picture book about finding your way and not giving up.

Against the Wind is a beautifully illustrated metaphor for our lives. Paired with simple, yet
equally thoughtful words, it invites readers along a visually soothing journey through the ever-shifting path. Sometimes it’s easy, sometimes it’s hard, but, eventually, we all find our own way. A monochromatic palette of sepia hues gives a sense of seriousness to the story, while the splashes of red and yellow provide readers with a feeling of hope. The minimal text is hand-written and masterfully blended into the illustrations, becoming an integral part of the story.

  • Yachting is Inna Karamyan’s hobby, and the lessons she has learned from her struggles with nature’s elements inspired this book.
  • Evocative ink and watercolour art.
  • Playful use of text and imagery.
  • Perfect for fans of Corinna Luyken and Louise Greig.
