Now available in The Rabbit Room Bookstore is Jamin Still’s latest work, a collection of deeply immersive stories and paintings called Tales of Hibaria: The Awakening. Click through to learn more about this beautiful project.
The twelve stories contained in this volume introduce the reader to the world of Hibaria and the Islands. It is a world of magic and mystery, of dragons and sea serpents, a world where the Sky Lords—the Constellations—can take physical form and walk the land. It is a world in which an ancient evil, long imprisoned, threatens to break free.
The central characters in these stories are children and young adults who grapple with fear and sorrow, loss and longing, and who are given the opportunity to choose courage and hope. Their individual stories weave together to begin to tell a larger narrative.
This full-color volume is as much a book of stories as it is an art book: it is brimming with richly painted illustrations, numerous supplemental sketches, and finely detailed maps. Here is a sampling of page spreads and images included in the book:
