In a big rectangular artistsí book with the title "Sluss-Trollen Rull" an unknown artist has created a story around trolls, or rather a small family of cars. The book is printed in serigraphy, by the hands of Malte Axelsson. Modernistic with constant bold perspectives and views. In a very special colour-scale - I can still smell the pigments from the prints from 1963. Ash-grey, arsenic, Bleu de France, blue gray together with brick red, citrine, bubble-gum and dark champagne.The family "Rull" or "Roll" lives in Slussen and love their small world. People never see them because humans are only thinking of themselves. A transparent tunnel-ghost called "Thin" also lives there and tells the family stories about the world outside. The family is often found by a gas station, drinking petrol. Little "Rush" likes to blend the petrol with oil Ė although thatís not good for your figure. "Rally" enjoys to rally around for hours and hours, but the trolls also likes to turn off the engines just to watch other cars and inhale the lovely smell of petrol. Fresh air is more of a nasty smell. They love technique, moving stairways and all their multi-faceted relatives with different engines, colours, sizes and shapes that rolls the streets both day and night.". Bookseller Inventory # 9173
