EDITOR'S NOTES

This simple, beautiful recurring dream is from the autobiographical kids' story Little White Duck written by Na Liu and illustrated by her husband Andrés Vera Martínez. The whole book is this gorgeous--fusing Western comics, Chinese brush painting, and the woodcut look of old Maoist posters.
