"“…a thousand promises in an endless night,
the dream of living a love…"
Fickle, like under the influence of alcohol. A love made of illusions, false expectations, and brief, obscuring moments.
Colours and faces talk about wine, words about solitude. The solitude of everyone who, like the woman of this story, is sitting alone, and waiting for prince charming.
Ana Juan is a Spanish illustrator, author and painter. Born in Valencia in 1961, she moved to Madrid in the early 1980s. She exhibits her works and publishes her books all over the world – Spain, United States, Japan.

Ana Juan was awarded – among other prizes – the Ezra Jack Keats Prize for best new illustrator (The Night Eater, 2005), the Premio Junceda de Ilustración (For you are a Kenyan Child, 2007) and, in 2010, the prestigious Premio Nacional de Ilustración by the Spanish Ministry of Culture.
