Author, journalist, PhD, curator and professor – working with comics
My collection of Adamson merchandise is growing with leaps and bounds right now. These two, which arrived through the mail today, are figure sawed out of wood and presumably made privately since I’ve never seen another set. The precision of the work makes me think that there might have been a template printed in a weekly Swedish magazine. Does anyone know anything about this?
