About Viktor Halfwit
Viktor Halfwit started life as a one-and-a-half page tale by Thomas Bernhard. A short story for children. In Sunandini Banerjee’s reincarnation of this amazing story it metamorphosed into a 220 page illuminated manuscript! Each page is a visual surprise of multi-layered digital collages describing the journey of Viktor Halfwit through the forest, through the deep snow, in the middleof a winter night.
