By Heidi Trautmann
Blue, the colour of romanticism, blue the colour of endlessness and mystery…. the colour of ‘SAPPHIRE – The Promised Time’, Book I in the English translation. I open the book, the front pages in glittering Blue. The printing on recycled paper. Kemal’s colourful book illustrations on transparent drawing paper, the impression of irreality, transparency, other levels of existence of long ago but timelessly present. A fantasy book based on Cyprus legends of St. Hilarion.
