On the weekend I attended Oslo Book Fair 2008 in Lillestrøm. I had made a video loop displaying the books of Vega Forlag and Spartacus Forlag, that was shown on their stand. I wanted to make sure it was running smoothly (which it was, to mine and my client’s satisfaction), as well as having a look around.
I have to say it was a great spectacle, with most of the Norwegian publishing business represented, and many high profile speakers. Among other things I met the great author Salman Rushdie and secured a signed and dedicated copy of his newest novel The Enchantress of Florence.
Below are pictures of me, in front of the video loop I created, and some of the books that I have been involved in making over the past year that were on display. 1) Bilen vår (Our Car), which I designed both the jacket and layout for, 2) Kampen om Norge (The Battle of Norway), book jacket, layout and map illustration, 3) Isens menn (Men of the Ice), map illustrations, 4) Allmennquiz (General Quiz), book jacket design, layout and illustrations, 5) Piratenes historie (History of Piracy), layout, 6) Sjøørretboka (The Sea Trout Book), book jacket and layout, 7) promotional flyers for the Book Fair.
