Hifi’s pictorial guide to plants

NANAMAKI Kanako [Japan]


In a fictional country in 17th century Europe, plant hunter Hifi’s father, Ario, has been resurrected from death by the power of the mysterious “Grass of the Fairy” plant. But is the father she so dearly loves still human, or has he become a plant himself? This work is a rich tapestry of stories that weaves the ecology of plants into the backgrounds of its characters, and draws upon the conflict between nations.
