VAESEN

Finally!!
The first copies of Vaesen - the english language edition of Nordiska Väsen - have just arrived!! Personally I think the anglosaxon version looks even better than than the original thanks to the shorter, larger title which really pops in all its gilded splendour.

Order it here: http://www.bokus.com/bok/9789132181948/vaesen-spirits-and-monsters-of-scandinavian-folklore/

The ISBN number is 9789132181948 if you want to search for it that way.

It's still a Swedish book so it's not available in the States yet but hopefully it'll find it's way to Amazon soon.

PTEROSAURS AND SEA MONSTERS

Hello boys and girls!

My dinosaur book "Alla tiders Dinosaurier" has been out for a while now and I'm rather happy to say that the reaction has been very positive. Not only has it received great reviews in the Swedish press and book blogosphere, but it also seems to have been embraced by the paleoart and paleontological community to a much larger degree than I had expected.
Which of course is very nice.

Here's some links to a couple of reviews (all in swedish I'm afraid):

Dagens Nyheter

Tidningen Kulturen

Borås Tidning mfl.

There's also an exhibition based on the book at the Stockholm House of Culture & City Theatre (Kulturhuset Stadsteatern). I helped curate it which was a lot fun, and they've even built a large scale model of a Camarasaurus based on my art. The exhibition will be  running at least until the end of May (and perhaps over the summer as well) so if you're in Stockholm swing by and have a look.

I'm now working on the sequel which will simply be called "Flygödlor och havsmonster" (Pterosaurs and Sea Monsters) which will deal with all those other funky mesozooic reptiles that weren't dinosaurs but were around at the same time.

Here's a few samples from that new tome. Enjoy!
