Marino is a picture book about the life of an old Croatian fishing boat, gajeta. The illustrations are painted in acrylic on paper, using a substrate texture to achieve various surface effects. Through strongly felt and expressed colours, the author shows us Marino`s travel adventures: the moods od the sea, life on the sea and on board the boat. Scenes of a storm at sea, shipwreck, restoration and new launch alternate with scenes of bright windy days, calm dusks and starry nights on the calm sea, and also with dreamland scenes in which Marino meets the good ghosts of old sailing ships or listens to the song of the sirens.
