Monsters Do Not ExistMonsters Do Not Exist
A simple love story about confronting the monster under the bed. Suburban life takes a dramatic turn, tentacles appears out of nowhere all over the house and in the nusery the soft toys gets a life of their own when a thesis-writing woman comes face to face with a monster. The book alludes to a wide range of references from popular culture including Japanese tentacle hentai, animal documentaries from the depths of the ocean as well as the classic Danish TV series Matador. All woven into an original story drawn in a soft and organic style rich in details and unmistakably its own.

Monsters Do Not Exist is drawn and written by Ina Korneliussen who has made comics all her life and has no intention to stop. She likes deep-sea fauna and philosophical conversations over a nice cup of tea.

My first kissMy first kiss  by Lena Nicolajsen from the graphic design studio “Pinligt Selskab” = “The Embarrassing Company” . Lena has drawn and written two small books for us about something that most people will know: Not being able to fall asleep at night and about the very first kiss.Do you remember your first kiss?

Lena:
“The stories comes from my own experiences. We met three girlfriends at a bar one evening and talked about our very first kiss. It turned into an evening with red wine, olives and some pretty embarrassing stories. About being a kid and praying to God to have a boyfriend or about the pretty boy with the curly red hair that I dreamed of when I was 9 years old. I had no doubt that the book should be drawn in ink, in one color and it should be red, “Scharlach red.”
