About this title

Synopsis:

Simon Stålenhag s Tales from the Loop is a wildly successful crowd-funded project that takes viewers on a surprising sci-fi journey through various country and city landscapes from small towns in Sweden and the deserts of Nevada to the bitter chill of Siberia where children explore and engage with abandoned robots, vehicles, and machinery large and small, while dinosaurs and other creatures wander our roads and fields. Stålenhag s paintings and stories take place in an alternate version of Sweden in the 80s and 90s, primarily in the countryside of Mälaröarna, a string of islands just west of Stockholm, and how this reality came about: the development of the Loop, a large particle accelerator and the side effects of the massive project. These incredibly captivating works and accompanying text capture perhaps a not-too-distant reality that is both haunting and imminent: addressing the many ways developing technology and nature can create havoc and wonder in our world plus, its impact on the next generation. This is the English edition of the first book in Swedish that sold out in its initial printing.

Review:

"If you've got a geek in your family who needs a Christmas present, this should be it. They'll love you forever. If you've got a young nerd in need of corruption a kid who'd benefit from having their reality shaken and their head filled with impossible things this'll do the trick because, Tales has the magic. It's got the robots, the weirdness, the dinosaurs." - NPR.ORG"

Tales from the Loop is Sci-Fi Art Excellence: "Stalenhag was far and away my favorite sci-fi artist of 2015, and Tales From the Loop will show you why. His universe is a dystopia you wouldn t mind exploring, one that oppresses you with mystery and beauty rather than drab soldiers or vacuous you have this emotion, therefore you belong in this group regimes. The Loop is sophisticated sci-fi buried under snowy Swedish dirt. And I can t wait to dig deeper. --Kyle Hill, Nerdist"

Tales From The Loop Is A Stunning Book Of Alternate Nostalgia: We re enormous fans of Simon Stalenhag s artwork around here, ever since we first came across him in 2013. His work mixes high-tech futurism with scenes from every day Sweden. Now, he s released a brilliant --art book Andrew Liptak, io9.com"

"Simon Stalenhag did not forget the robots. More to the point, Simon Stalenhag can t forget the robots, because in his remarkable, beautiful new art book, Tales From The Loop, he has embedded them into our collective past, offering a vision of an alt-history Sweden in the late 80 s and early 90 s where they clack through suburban streets, lurk in the backyard trees, or lie, still and cold, abandoned in snowy fields. --Jason Sheenan, npr.org"
