Diver is a children’s book loosely based on the “haenyeo.” They are deep sea divers that live on Jeju Island in South Korea, representing what may be the last generation of this profession. The book follows a young girl who meets one of these divers.
All illustrations were first created by hand with paper, then digitally edited and color-corrected. Original body text was added to the digital spreads.
The book has an exposed coptic binding and an accompanying booklet at the end that gives more detailed information about the divers.
