We’re absolutely thrilled to finally be publishing a stunning new Leporello by one of our favourite illustrators, Kellie  Strøm.

Worse Things Happen at Sea utilizes Nobrow’s popular Leporello series to allow  Strøm to flex his drawing muscles and come up with a monster of a concertina book. Inspired by tales of mythical sea creatures and the tall stories of doomed voyages passed down from sailor to son, Strøm brings us a rich tapestry of wonderment. Historical ships are attacked, enveloped and engorged by monstrous creatures surfacing from the deepest depths of the darkest oceans. Covering 20 panels each measuring 13.8cm x 23.5cm the image unfolds in front of you like a foreboding fable from the cracked lips of an old sea captain.

Taking over two years to create, the faux engraved colour separation style used for this project has been a departure from his two previous picture books, both illustrated with full colour acrylic paintings. In both techniques Strøm wrestled with creating detailed immersive worlds while also trying to preserve some of the immediacy of the original physical art. To reward the first lucky few we’ve asked Strøm to sign 50 copies which you can treasure like the most precious of loot aboard the Nuestra Señora de Atocha (though we’d advise you not to let it follow the same watery fate).

Unfortunately we are only able to send signed copies of the book to UK and European destinations.
