Hiraeth (n.): a homesickness for a home to which you cannot return, a home which maybe never was; the nostalgia, the yearning, the grief for lost places in your past.

Hiraeth is the final project for my Bachelor of Design in Illustration at the HKU.

With the book Hiraeth I tried to capture the nostalgic longing for home through illustrations, poems and quotes. I hope that it speaks to people who struggle with a sense of belonging and feeling at home. I have used images of minerals, crystals and other natural materials to show the influence of the landscape, present and past, on feeling at home.
