Presentation

The Reddest Rose Unfolds comic book by Swedish writer Liv Strömquist is dedicated to love. Where does it come from and where does it disappear ? Why did the whole concept of love work differently at different times and are we really so bad at love today? What do Socrates and Papa Smurf think about it? The Czech edition was prepared with the work of translator Marie Voslářová and the graphic artist Eva Nečasová, both of whom will present the book. Each of them struggled with their own specific puzzles and hiccups at work - but their common goal was to keep the book as playful and quirky as the original.
As a bonus and a goodbye to the swimsuit season, they have also prepared a short, unpublished short comic Riots Not Diets for the KOMA festival.
