comics / French


L’Association, 2017, 376 pages. b/w, format 15 cm x 20,5 cm

Ce livre relié au petit format est un concentré d’apocalypse dans lequel Max Andersson creuse et déterre les vestiges d’un monde enfoui dans les ténèbres. L’Excavation est un merveilleux cauchemar interminable où tout est cassé ou en voie de rupture, les choses comme les êtres, où tout est en décomposition ou en voie d’extinction, le pouvoir comme la résistance, où tout est absurde et drôle, comme un désespoir qui aurait encore du savoir-vivre. Encore un peu. Pas pour longtemps. Dépêchez-vous…

Bosnian Flat Dog
L’Association, 2005, 80 pages. b/w, format 21,5 cm x 29 cm

A unique collaboration between Max Andersson and Lars Sjunnesson resulted in this graphic novel-length piece of surreal comics journalism, erasing and re-drawing the borders between dream and reality to form a tale both sincere and fantastic. Each of them contributed to every single drawing to the extent that they no longer can tell themselves just who did what. This has led to the emergence of an independent artistic entity, one who is neither of the two, but something else, unknown yet strangely familiar and perhaps a tiny bit scary. The story is based on true events.

This book edition also contains an extensive illustrated glossary and a preface by Stefan Skledar. Bonus extravaganza only in this edition: it comes with a real, folding map of Ex-Yugoslavia and Sarajevo like you never saw them before (and never will again)!

"This is a damned compelling book if you want a read that will wake you up and not lull you to sleep."
Win Wiaciek, Now Read This!
