A book that responds to a famous book – Marriage of Heaven and Hell by William Blake. I am a great admirer of Blake’s poems, images and prints. This book is a humble hommage. In the text I imagine myself walking through his strange world where profets quarrel and fearsome creatures howl. I composed short verses in Swedish and made simple line drawings in Adobe Illustrator. They have no meaningful connection to the text. They are only products of my imagination. The book Barfota is the Swedish version that I made first. Then came the English version where text is reduced to two key words on each page. Since my home printer only print black-and-white I added some colouring by hand to all the drawings. The cover paper on the book case is painted with water colour. Size: 45×60 mm, 96 pages. One copy only.
