Tales From The Loop - Simon Stålenhag Art Book

Initially conceived as a 2 volume kickstarter art book project, Simon Stålenhag’s Tales from the Loop is a mesmerizing sci-fi journey that takes the viewer through various desolate country and city landscapes inhabited by abandoned robots, machinery and giant mecha.

Stålenhag combines his stunning eye for pleasing aesthetics and apt application of visual tricks like atmospherics, perspective, depth of field and subtle rim lighting to create highly cinematic images that really draw viewer in. And I love his taste for mecha and machinery.

The 2 volume kickstarter set was a little out of my price range, so I’m really glad this general release is now available and I wasted little time picking it up, lest it goes out of print again. Highly recommended.

Feeling is mutual.

Can I just say that I absolutely love this style of science fiction art? I am going to buy this as soon as I get home from work today.

I couldn’t wait 7 more hours to make it home, and I’m paranoid that it might somehow get sold-out in the interim, so I bought it using my Amazon app on my phone. Thanks technology!

That said, I would love to buy some prints of his art for my home. I find his works very powerful and they inspire my imagination immensely.
