Ka Yuk Tong's book "My Salvaged Stories" is a story of Tong's family and roots in Hong Kong. The book is available at Liefhertje en De Grote Witte Reus in the Hague or Boekie Woekie in Amsterdam.
You can look the video accompanying the book project in Vimeo. I like the way to mix the book format, drawing and storytelling in the video.

Exhibition about the KW's own publications.
Publishers' tables in the big hall
Book exhibition going on the wall of the hall.
My blog has been a bit quiet because lately I have been working with my own artist book and it has taken all my free time. I also moved from Helsinki, Finland, to Berlin, Germany, few weeks ago.
Once I arrived here I noticed there was Miss Read happening at KW in Mitte. I spent Saturday there browsing the books and wondering everything I haven't seen before. More in the next post!

I happened to get copies of Kaori Mitsushima's Cats I Know zines earlier this week. Kaori's zines have personal drawing style which feels very unique and fresh to me. Drawings are strong and by looking then it's possible to see how Kaori enjoys every stroke she makes. It's also refreshing to see how well the strong drawings work in simple black and white zines.

Today is the book launch for Anna Sailamaa's new graphic novel "The Shepherd". The comic tells about worker class boys and their life in the North of Finland. I really admire Anna's way of drawing and her way to create characters who feel so real and honest.
You can get your copy by ordering from HuudaHuuda or contacting Anna. The book has English subtitles.
