Mladen Penev is an extremely talented graphic designer. He is a 31-year-old and he is from from Bulgaria. His work is an impressive mix of photography, CGI, and digital image manipulation. One of my favorite series of his is his ‘Power of Books” series where the reader is literally enveloped by the open book he reads. The series was published way back in 2005 in Vienna, Austria but Mladen’s message is just as relevant today as it was nine years ago. Books, really good ones, have the power to grab the reader’s attention and immerse him in a make-believe world. Mladen currently lives and works in Australia.
