Simon Stålenhag’s retro-Scandinavian sci-fi images have been wildfire across the internet in the last few years. Now – not only is his first artbook coming in English for the first time – with your help, we will publish a brand new second book as well, continuing his amazing story.
Across the backdrop of an expansive retro-Scandinavian landscape, Swedish illustrator Simon Stålenhag has spent the last few years imagining a world of science fiction inhabited by roaming mech robots, dinosaurs, and other technological innovations plopped right onto the Swedish countryside. The digitally painted images spread far and wide across the internet over the last few years, capturing the imagination of legions of fantasy and sci-fi fans who clamoured for comic books and even a feature film.
With this Kickstarter we are seeking funds for two lavishly produced art books with homegrown sci-fi from Sweden. These are:
- Book One: Tales from The Loop
- Book Two: Swedish Machines, Lonely Places
