The images on this page
were illustrated by me some
time ago for the novel
One
Hundred Years of Solitude
(Cien años de soledad)
by
Colombian Nobel Prize
winner
  Gabriel García
Márquez.

Written in the late 1960s, the
book tells the epic story of
the Buendía family. The
author's style of "magic
realism" created a boom for
Latin American literature,
inspiring several generations
of writers to tell the myriad
stories of their respective
countries using innovative
language and narrative
voices.
