VOL I BUNDLE
WHAT IS THE CARPET MERCHANT ABOUT?
A two-volume graphic novel set in 17th century Istanbul and 18th century England, centering on a carpet merchant, and his relationship with faith, love and home in the
aftermath of his death by a vampire.
A historical romance with a modern, satirical take on Gothic fiction and the literary vampire genre. It builds on positive Muslim representation, and is heavily inspired by Ottoman miniatures and the Rococo aesthetic.
Vol I is about two carpet merchants, who found each other when they were young, and who built their life together. When one of them dies and unexpectedly returns from the dead, they must find within their love the strength to let go.
