St Odin's Hunt / Ragnarok

St Odin's Hunt / Ragnarok

To accompany a book review of AS Byatt's new book 'Ragnarok' - which means end of the gods in Norse mythology. The book is about a girl who is evacuated to the countryside in England during WWII. The girl finds and immerses herself in a book she finds about Norse mythology. St Odin's Wild Hunt is a story the girl reads. The illustration places both the myth, the girl and the backdrop of modern war in the same setting.
