Everything began with a creative play between Oriol Llort Malet, Louis, who was added to the Ophelia in the final phase of development. Due to the difficulty in its format – so it is not strictly a novel or a book illustration or a graphic novel, if not all the time or none of this – the editorial Barcanova has been determined to shape the project, first with a hardcover book, posters and bookmarks, and later with the hardcover version, games and much more.

The mixture of fiction, reality, real characters and situations, and rulings narrated historical parallel with literary quality is such that any lover of literature can be attracted.
