Rasin Lakay features Rejin Leys

“Book of Numbers for Your Pandemic Dreams”

Rejin Leys’ bilingual, animated dream book provides lottery numbers for what you might be dreaming about during the Covid19 crisis.

 

 

“The dream books in my collection include outdated words like “icebox,” “snuff,” and “typewriter.” A dream book for the pandemic wouldn’t have been complete without a number for “Zoom”.

 

 

 

“According to my survey, the most common pandemic dreams include wearing (or forgetting to wear) a mask.”


“Everyone is hoping for a miracle cure.”
