The Crane Wife

 

Once upon a time, a kind man saves a crane from a trap. Moved by his kindness, the crane transforms herself into a woman’s figure and weaves the most beautiful cloth in the world with her feather --- one of the most beloved Japanese folktales “The Crane Wife” is reborn as an interactive eBook for the iPad application. 

To maintain the essence of classic Japanese beauty, all illustrations are drawn by traditional methods such as etching, ink, and watercolor on Japanese paper. 

The interactive picture book “The Crane Wife” is a modern approach to the classic Japanese folklore and will bring you fresh surprises with many playful touch panel tricks.
