Designed by Warja Lavater these books are made with a 4 meters sheet folded in accordion. The characters, elements of the plot and scenes are represented and symbolized by colour dots or geometric shapes which are translated into French, English and German.
The magic of Snow White’s tale operates through the mirror that faithfully answers the questions of the wicked queen. Warja Lavater has been able to recreate as symbols the dramatic plot of the story. Colors and shapes illustrate the tragic, magical or wonderful moments of the plot, such as the symbol describing Snow White that depicts her “Black hair like ebony, red lips like blood and white skin like snow”.
