The most talented and amazing costume designer, in my opinion.
The spirit Tallapunjil spends each rainy season gathering life from the fertile plains; fuel in her attempt at birthing her own Creation. But each year as the rainclouds draw back and the sun bakes the soil, this stillborn Creation, starved and incomplete, releases its energy back into the earth as the fires that mark the beginning of the dry.
Wedge-tailed eagles, which long ago learned of this cycle of gathering and destruction, roost on her ancient body each year to await the birth of fire, and swoop down on the myriad little creatures fleeing the advancing flames.

Neither Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist Will Navidson nor his companion Karen Green was prepared to face the consequences of that impossibility, until the day their two little children wandered off and their voices eerily began to return another story — of creature darkness, of an ever-growing abyss behind a closet door, and of that unholy growl which soon enough would tear through their walls and consume all their dreams.
House of Leaves is a uniquely designed book, telling not only the story of the Navidson family, but that of the book’s editor Johnny Truant, through a series of increasingly mad footnotes, tangents, and surreal designs. The way this book plays with space - both within the prose and the words on them page themselves - is remarkable.
