I love these illustrations by Bjorn Rune Lie from his book Slapsefjell. Like the best picture books, there is lots to look at in every spread and the colours are beautiful. The book in his own words:
‘It’s “a day in the life” of a made up mountain village in Norway called Slapsefjell (Slush Mountain), where you are taken on a tour around the town centre and ski slopes, get a chance to meet some of the local characters and see what’s going on. It’s a “homage” to the Norwegian winter, the culture of cabin trips, skiing and the great outdoors’
I particularly like the above image because it looks a bit like the view from my window right now! I’m in Davos again and it’s cold as hell. Though I won’t have time to go skiing or play boardgames this time, these images really perked me up today.
