Stig

Annica Hedin & Per Gustavsson

There’s something very wrong.
Do you see that hole there?
That’s where Stig used to sit.
Stig passed away during the summer. Life continues. Fish fingers need to be eaten and trees need to be climbed in. But there is always a hole there.
This is a moving story about loss, about how present an absent person can be. It’s about carrying the sorrow on one’s own, but also about carrying it together.

Press voices
"This simple, universal and hopeful little story deserves to be read by more. Annica Hedin and Per Gustavsson choose to take hope and despair in each of their hands in 'Stig"..
-Expressen

"A fantastic collaboration where the images and the text really complement each other."
-Bubblan i bibblan

"The book is packed with the force that drives life and the living forward. [...] Annica Hedin's text formulates cautiously, almost indirectly, about loss and how life pretends to be the same."
