We Go To the Park / Playgrounds

Sara Stridsberg & Beatrice Alemagna

Playgrounds is a picture book for children and adults of all ages – about play, childhood, and the universal question of where we come from.

Some say that we come from stars, that we’re made of stardust,
that once we swirled into the world from nowhere. We don’t know.
So we go to the park.

Some pages are just illustrated, on others the text gets all the space for itself.

The park is a forest in the city. It is the land beyond.
In the park, anything can happen. Sometimes so much happens
that the whole world is overturned. Sometimes nothing happens at all.
It doesn’t matter. We just want to go there.

Playgrounds is a one-of-a-kind project that can be read on many levels. It is boldly designed – almost as big as an LP, with raw edges and a special binding.
