By interlocking abstract and figurative elements, these illustrations highlight distinctive features of the Mongolian culture. The characters depicted, the garments and traditional patterns consist of only a few lines. This pointed emphasis conveys factual information in a modern, almost comic-like way. Skilfully combined with Mongolian letters and ornaments, the illustrations thus put on display a well-balanced dialogue between the typography and the human caricatures in the pictorial space.
