Retro-Scandinavian sci-fi artbook


Recommended Posts

This is a bit of an oddball, but I thought it was cool enough to mention. Swedish artist Simon Stålenhag is releasing two books of his artwork, which is a blend of pastoral Swedish countryside with sci-fi elements (as he says in the video, he's painting the landscape he grew up in, and where he as a kid dreamed of robots and dinosaurs). To be honest, I don't think I will be backing; I think it looks really neat, but am just not that into artbooks, at least not enough to justify the cost. I'm also not sure how great the international appeal will be, as a big part of what makes this fun for me is that the images really, really convey the feeling of the country I grew up in, Sweden in the 80'ies. But have a look at it and see what you think!


The publisher is Free League Publishing, the creator of Mutant: Year Zero, a RPG set in a near-future post-apocalyptic Sweden, which has just recently been translated to English by Modiphius Entertainment (although I believe the English version is instead set in London/New York).
