Junction by Nathan Jurevicius

Inspired by the parental tall tale of warning if the wind changes your face will stick like that, as well as Judeo-Christian mythology and the mythology of Australian aboriginal tribes, Junction combines a variety of influences to produce a magical piece of modern mythmaking. Akin to the sophisticated cerebral children's books of Neil Gaiman, the themes and stunning art of Junction can be appreciated by both children and adults in equal measure.Nathan Jurevicius has had tremendous success in expanding properties across platforms such as toys, videogames and film. Junction also has the potential for expansion into other media.


Junction is a truly remarkable picture book, sure to fascinate children and grown-ups alike. - Andrew Woodrow-Butcher, Broken Pencil Junction is an ideal book for young readers attracted to a more bizarre aesthetic, showing children how to break traditional design rules to create art with a distinct perspective. Adults can find value in the intricacy of Jurevicius

- Oliver Sava, A.V. Club Junction...leaves readers with a newfound appreciation of the combined power of image and imagination. - Christina Quintiliani, Canadian Review of Materials An enticing slide into the strange, particularly for fans of Shaun Tan's wilder fancies. - Kirkus Reviews Nathan Jurevicius

...a rare achievement that only a true master of mysterio autentico can accomplish. - Jim Woodring, creator of Frank and JimPraise for Scarygirl A superb example of the cheerful, pigtailed-horror aesthetic that presents otherwise nightmarish worlds as cuddly-cute and kookily spooky, Scarygirl is a delight for the eyes. - Will Freeman, The Guardian A visually stunning book...a bold spectacle. - Sunday Age The artwork explodes with vibrant color and psychedelic imagery, drawing Scarygirl's world in bold and vivid detail...A whole feast of treats and surprises. - Center for Youth Literature
