“Educational kids’ books and allegories for any age group are so often tedious, but the playful illustrations by Áslaug Jónsdóttir and the sweet characterizations in Blue Planet make this story of environmental devastation and first world privilege go down easy.” – Gemma D. Alexander [link to blog]
♦ Book review: This quote above, about the illustrations in The Story of the Blue Planet by Andri Snær Magnason, is from a very nice review by Gemma D. Alexander. Read the full post and book report here.
♦ Leikhús: Næsta vetur hefjast sýningar á samnefndu leikriti Andra Snæs í Aalborg Theater. Hér má lesa meira um sýninguna. Í kynningarefni var valið að nota myndlýsingar úr bókinni, samsett í nýja mynd.
♦ Theater: Next winter Aalborg Theater in Denmark will run Magnason’s play by same name. If you read Danish there is more about it all here. Illustrations from the book are used for posters and PR material in a new and imaginative combination.
