The first Tales from The Loop book was released on the Swedish Book Fair in September 2014 and was an instant success. The book contained the full first set of paintings from The Loop, the enormous particle accelerator hidden beneath the pastoral Swedish countryside, as well as a score of short stories chronicling life in the shadow of the machines. For the first time the deep and layered setting behind Simon’s paintings were available to the public. And soon, thanks to your help, this book will be available to the international English speaking audience.
But with this Kickstarter we are seeking funds for publishing not only one, but two beautifully crafted art books schock full with Simon Stålenhag’s paintings and stories. The first book is translated, layouted and ready to be sent to the printers. The second book, with the working title Swedish Machines, Lonely Places is in development, Simon has done roughly half of the new paintings and we are planning for a late 2016 release for this one.
