Lisen Adbåge & Emma AdBåge

There are all kinds of people! Someone sees his life flash before his eyes, while someone else tries to give a compliment to a stranger. A third one loves eating very spicy food and a fourth is thinking about what fashion really is about. Someone finds consolation in shopping, while the other is super-hairy and a third is scrolling on the mobile.

In the picture book People, old, young, angry and happy, worried and in love are portrayed. By themselves and together. Because together and on our own, we are all people after all. People is a sequel to Halsen rapar, hjärtat slår (The Throat Burps, the Heart Beats), Emma and Lisen Adbåge’s first book together, with which they won the Lennart Hellsing Prize.

The multi-talented sisters have over the past years received a lot of attention for their illustrations and stories – here they show once again their ability to express both the serious and the absurd, with poetry sparkling with linguistic creativity and joy. 2018 has been a successful year for the Adbåge sisters: Emma won the August prize for Gropen and Lisen received the Elsa Beskow plaque for Samtidigt som.
