Product Description[Den svenska utgåvan av boken finns här.]
The Loop is closed. Life is returning to normal when the pastoral countryside is suddenly flooded by dark water from the huge abandoned underground facility. Rumors spread in classrooms and schoolyards, stories about the flood and how it has brought something with it. One thing is clear: the past is not ready to be forgotten.
Simon Stålenhag is back. In his new artbook Things from the Flood, Stålenhag continues the stories of Tales from the Loop, memories of a Nordic childhood infused with strange machines and weird creatures from other dimensions. In Things from the Flood, Stålenhag moves his focus from the ’80s to the ’90s, the decade of great change when the outside world truly came to Scandinavia. These are tales of the trials of youth, of schoolyard hazings, of first kisses, of finding yourself – and robots.
PS. This kickstarter edition of the artbook contains a folded map of the land of the Loop, as well as three separate art prints that you can frame and hang on your wall!
