Sometimes you want to do something good. Help out a little, share your time and happiness. The new colouring book "The World of the Norns" is just such a project, with 25 kr per book sold going to Plan International and their work for girls' right to education and security. Hear creator Nusse talk about the book:
After making "Needle Binding", translating it into German and French and making a painting book for children, I felt it was time for me, Nusse, to do something with a different focus than imparting knowledge and teaching. Something that was for fun, but also that did something good for the world. Backed by Scanglas, the result was a collaboration with some of the most talented and exciting women I know, each given free rein to interpret Viking motifs and phenomena. The images were stunning, with soul and charm and little, little secrets woven into the lines; images that will hopefully give those who colour them a sense of connection across the millennia.
The women I've worked with are not only creative but also caring and generous, so instead of getting paid for their artwork, they all donate their share to charity.
