The Book of Marriage is an illustration book that portrays a love story between a human and a raspberry to allude to the hidden fear of a failed heterosexual marriage.
It is divided into 11 visual chapters:
Two people met. They've found each other, and themselves, in this raspberry field.
So they sacrificed willingly to this orchard.
The orchard sacrificed itself too, the man and the orchard drew nutrition from each other,
not hearing the warnings from outside.
They married, blossomed, and bore new fruits. They took a family photo together.
Juicy and tasty, the new born raspberry fruits.
Juicy and tasty, lying down.
Eyes open, in the hospital, tangled raspberries and a man.
Bites and bites and bites, meals and meals and meals, days and days and days, years and years and years. Their kid grew up.
Difficult to maintain nutrients, unable to sleep at nights. Said their kid.
The fruits were ripe, but escaped. The raspberries were rotten, fell and chased. The fruit farmer found out, so he ran after them, breathlessly.
Dissolved, and stained red.
