Is a hardcover photo book with 224 pages in high quality offset print. It will be in stores end of August 2010, published by the german publishing company "Seltmann+Söhne".
The title "Anderswelten" is actually a fictional creation by Sven and Bjørn. If you try to translate you could say the best result would be
"exceptional and different worlds" - A bit closer explained it stands for the way the artists experience the forgotten places - They are real but it is like entering a new and parallel world, with the step through the door they enter a new world inside the usual one - With other rules, frozen in time and forgotten stories.
The book will be seperated into chapters of extraordinary places, introduced by a text which tells a bit of the story about the place. As the book is published on the german market all written text will be in german language. But as bot artists are active international as well the book will be delivered with a booklet which includes all texts in english for other countries, to be open for everyone.
