A young frog (hatched this spring) encounters two toads, who have captured the ghost of a Shungiku flower that withered and died just recently. The spirit yearns for the tropics and so do the two toads. The frog decides to follow them on their journey south. It’s a slice of seasonal life for a frog who experiences everything for the first time. Along the way, the frog has encounters with mice, cats, dogs, trees, persimmons, and other beings. Lessons are learned, and thoughts are exchanged. A meditative road trip, a contemplation on life in general.
Linnea Sterte is one of the most mysterious illustrators in Sweden, but probably one of the absolute best. You may recognise her on Instagram as TurnDeCasette, or from the book Stages of Rot which she released in 2017 which she was also Eisner nominated for.
This is the longest Peow book that we have ever published, at just over 330 pages. The story is told in a landscape format, printed in a solid blue pantone ink on our favourite paper from Munken. The book has an open spine binding and a thick kraft cover with white and blue pantone spot colors. To fit the landscape book comfortably in bookshelves, the book has a rotated slipcase, so that you can store the book vertically.
