Without words, Circus is one of the best illustrated books by Ana Juan. The celebrated Spanish illustrator holds fast to the belief that images are narrative literature for all eyes. The plot – drawn with black charcoal stick with occasional coloured strokes – is developed in a circus where the characters are shown to the readers from unconventional point of view. In fact, here we meet a varied humanity turning loose and charming the only two spectators: a pair of blue eyed silly twin girls. An animation on paper, a story told without words that leaves space for imagination and restlessness.
