Eguberria is a picture book inspired by the oral tradition of the Basque country, which combines literary and artistic characteristics. In this new vision of Christmas, by stripping the representation of this time of year of all the usual platitudes, it retrieves a Christmas feeling based on personal experience, the loving memory of our ancestors, oral culture, literary tradition and the contemplation of nature. The illustrations are done with black marker and acrylic on sumi-e paper. This book was selected for the IBBY Honour List 2014.
