“I had a million toys and, but I was bored. So I climbed into the attic .”

This is the beginning of En el desván (In the attic), the story that inspires us. This beautiful book by Satoshi Kitamura and Hiawyn Oram shows that imagination knows no limits: it allows us to know the details of a family of mice, fly over beautiful blue cities, and even become friends with a tiger to play a game that never ends.


Our proposal recovers the attic space as a world that is both mysterious and familiar. A place where we will not be able to know what will happen until we get inside.


"I climbed out of the attic, and told my mother where I´d been all day.

-But we don't have an attic -she said".
