The Nothing

Kati Närhi | Finland

The Nothing is a picture book suitable for adults and young adults. The story is about a small town which is afflicted by a strange melancholy. The citizens react in different ways: a widow suddenly sees her late husband, a collector starts to think his art collection despises him and the all-seeing-pig refuses to tell the future anymore. This story is slightly sad but humourous too. Although it is about depression (and it could be read as a description of the time of Coronavirus). I hope it would still be comforting and uplifting in the end. I published a small print of the book myself in Finland this spring.
