Entry Description: The book presents a report on "The Odyssey" written by a student that in the eve of his paper's submission, mistakenly gets from the library the full version of Homer's epic, instead of the one adapted for his age, resulting in a wild interpretation of this classic, illustrated through a very unconventional visual narrative, combining a series of engravings from 1805, which narrated the original version of Homer's work, with photographs from a digital image bank. This graphical fusion reveals a chaotic, but extremely fun, version of the classic, converging different contexts and eras, mixing reality, mythology and fantasy.
