The Golem Illustrations
Terri was inspired by the story of 'The Golem' By Gustav Meyrink to create a series of illustrations. She took inspiration from her own experiences and interest and also from artists such as Gustav Klimt and Oliver Jeffers. As Terri has never visited Prague before, she created her own fantasy world and invented a new setting for the story to take place. She wanted to create images to appeal to a young audience, and also to show the incredible sadness and fear that surrounds the story.

'A woman floated past. I could not see her face, it was turned away and she was wearing a cloak of flowing teardrops.'

' "It's a card, a miserable, stupid little playing card!" I sent the scream echoing round my skull, but in vain . . . now it was . . . was taking on human form . . . the Juggler . . . and was squatting in the corner and staring at me with vacant eyes out of my own face!'

'Hillel's late wife also saw the Golem face to face and had the same sensation as I did of being paralysed as long as the mysterious being was in the vicinity. She used to say she was firmly convinced that it could only have been her own soul which had left her body for a moment and confronted her for a brief second'
