Innledningstekst fra boken:
The Arctic, or the Circumpolar North, is the area to the north of the northern polar circle, i.e. north of 66° 33'N. There are eight countries whose territories extend into this circle including the United States, Canada, Denmark (via Greenland), Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Finland, and Russia.
The total area within the Arctic circle encompasses 30 million square kilometers (12 million square miles), of which
14 million square kilometers (5 million square miles) is land.
This book contains a small selection of motifs inspired by this region, which can be cold and arid and at times covered with ice and snow, but at the same time teeming with life and colors in the most unexpected places.
It is our hope that this book will bring you joy, serenity and peace of mind. We have also created short titles in Norwegian, English and Latin, in order for you to explore more information if you want to. Some of these species also exist south of the Arctic circle. As the climate changes rapidly, so do the living conditions for both animals, plants and man.
David van der Poel has used his artistic license to interpret animals, plants and natural phenomena, and in the same way you are free to use the colors you want. He has drawn everything by hand. No shortcuts have been taken. This is a book to take back your time.
