The publication is a reflection on ten years of developments in the Šaleška valley, which, in addition to a constructively critical view, also includes a yearning for progress and a better quality of life together. Each column is accompanied by an associated graphic, which, through visual interpretations of the stories, presents my narrative in my role as graphic designer.
