A new book by author and artist Lars Lerin, Bare Skin.
Writing letters may seem to be an extinct art. Lars Lerin and Kerstin Högstrand prove that this is not the case. In this book they collect letters and pictures that the two friends sent to each other in 2006-2009.
The texts are personal, private and yet open, an ongoing conversation about all the things that makes what we call life. There are high and low, big and small emotions: concerns for diseases and for the future, changes of the year, long and short trips, the loved cats and the loneliness when friends go away. Not least, here is Lars’s story about the love for Junior, the man he learns to know during this time.
