Finally got hold of a copy of the Finnish edition of The Book of Hope. No major bugs in this or at least they’re mostly visible just to me. Anyway, it looks like a book. Sorry for the crappy video – kind of hard to browse while having  cam in your mouth.

Anyway, this Friday I’ll travel to Leipzig in Germany to visit Millionaires Club -comic festival & The Leipzig Book Fair where the German edition will officially be released. There’ll be a talk at Millionaires Club on Saturday (14–) and on Sunday at the book fair (Hall 5, D200) with my good old Finnish colleague Petteri Tikkanen (11.30–12). After that Petteri & I will speak more in Berlin on Tuesday at the Finnland-Institut (19-). Along this I’ll be signing books on Saturday (15–16) and Sunday (12–13) at Avant-Verlag’s booth. If you’re around, pop by to say hi!

Meanwhile the ‘Blossoming’ exhibition continue’s its tour and can be now seen at Kino Siska in Ljubljana, Slovenia.

Stuff happening!

The Book of Hope HC

For the past months I’ve been working hard with compiled edition of The Book of Hope series. Today I can gladly inform that this 224-page book in hardcovers will be out in Finnish (Like), German (Avant-Verlag), Spanish (Aristas Martinez), Polish (Timof), Danish (Forlaens) and English (Fantagraphics Books). All of these will be released during this month except the US edition that will be out later in September. I’ve tuned things here and there (that most likely no one else besides me will notice) and hand-lettered each edition (phew). As this has been a 10-year project I’m excited to see it inside same covers in full length. Meanwhile, I’ll try to travel to each country with a small exhibition as well. Next stops will be at The Millionaires Club & Leizig Book Fair 13.–15.3. and The Tampere Comics Festival 28.–29.3. The serie of Hope was originally released as five smaller books in Finnish and French.

Image for Luke Ramsey’s silent book Intelligent Sentient? that’s out just now from Drawn & Quarterly. This was actually drawn couple of years ago. In the book colours by Luke. Preview images look damn good and D&Q’s reference to Koyaanisqatsi shall ring the bell.
