Although it was not supposed to be released until next month, the English edition of Magne Furuholmen – In Transit has now started shipping from at least one Norwegian online bookstore. I received my copy today. The Norwegian edition, however, still seems to be scheduled for February 14th.
At 400 pages long, this massive coffe-table book gives a detailed look at Magne’s most important art projects from 1993 to 2013, with an overwhelming amount of photos.
Edited by Stephanie von Spreter, Thor Arvid Dyrerud, Henrik S. Haugan and Magne Furuholmen, the book also features essays written by Mark Gisbourne, Ute Meta Bauer, Sune Nordgren, Richard Dyer, Selene Wendt and Per Hovdenakk. The photos have been taken by Lars Gundersen and 14 others, including Magne himself.
For anyone interested in Magne’s art, this book is a definite must-have.
The English edition can be pre-ordered from amazon.com, amazon.co.uk and amazon.de. If you are in Norway, the English edition can be ordered from haugenbok.no and bokkilden.no. The Norwegian edition (scheduled for February 14th) can also be ordered from haugenbok.no and bokkilden.no.
Update: there’s also a pre-sale on a-ha.com from 28 January – 6 February.
Here are a few previews of the book (click to enlarge):
