Bosnian Flat Dog

ISBN-10: 1-56097-740-X
ISBN-13: 978-1-56097-740-7
Fantagraphics Books, 2006, 112 pages, b/w, format 10” x 7 1/2”.

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 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 enlarged, reformatted edition has been carefully re-designed and expanded by the authors, and includes artwork not seen in previous editions.
It also contains an extensive illustrated glossary, a preface by Stefan Skledar and detailed maps of ex-Yugoslavia like you never saw it 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!
