Art book "Bear and worm" teeters between the book, in its classical meaning, and the artistic object which is supposed to be a children toy. All illustrations built in a classical rhythm, and the black bear is one of the main figures. But after the book is fully stretched it transforms in to a big and funny worm. The book is printed in linocuts on canvas. Stylistics is based on the traditional Ukrainian book graphics, and folk art. Its main specialty is the texts, which interweaves the pictures, and creates some kind of a game associated with the reading.
