The Chejov vs. Shakespeare project was first carried out in 2016 as part of the Donostia-San Sebastián European Capital of Culture. The project involves writers from different regions and languages who exchange letters about the challenges and conflicts in Europe. In 2019 the project was continued in the Scotland goes Basque program. At that time, eight titles were published, whose covers were illustrated by various authors: Amaia Arrazola, Iban Barrenetxea, Maite Gurrutxaga, Elena Odriozola, Iker Ayestaran, Ivan Mata, Javier de Isusi and Sara Morante.
Garay will illustrate a new edition of the project Correspondences - Chejov vs. Shakespeare to be held in 2020 as part of the Saison Québec-Pays basque program.
