The Art of
A Lily Among Thorns

The world of the 17th century was brought to life for a series of illustrations that would accompany the text.
Author Darren Bonaparte took photographs of modern Rotinonhsón:ni people dressed
 in the type of clothing that would have been worn by their counterparts three hundred years ago. 
The resulting photographs became the basis for pen-and-ink illustrations
by R. Kakwirakeron Montour, cartoonist for The Eastern Door newspaper.
Here is a sample of the photographs and the art they inspired.
