Old lion and young monkey

This is my bachelor work. It is a book of poetry of my grandpa, who is a plant scientist. But the book is much more – it also deals with our relationship. There is an authors part telling my and my grandpa’s life-story with photos, writings and child-like illustrations drawn though carbon paper. The text-part is playfully typeset and also sorted by time, so one can confront it with the pictorial section. Everything is yellow-blue, because my grandpa is colorblind and those colors are best for him. The book is named Old lion and young monkey after a picture I made for my grandpa as a little kid. Can you find it in the book?
