Karoliina Pertamo I


'Hämärinkäinen' is a Finish book written by Mila Teräs and illustrated by  Karoliina Pertamo published in 2015. A florist breaks the loom that creates dusk so that the flower makers have more time to create flowers, but then realises his mistake as everyone becomes to exhausted, and hurries to rescue the dusk weaver.


A parable about capitalism and modern life. We need dark for resting and slowing down and we need sleep, particularly when we are young, the perfect bedtime story with delicious delicate poetic illustrations.
