Glow of the North – So were born the seasons and magic of the North
Also available in Finnish as Pohjolan hehku.
Glow of the North is an artwork about the mystical magic of the seasons of the North created by artists from different fields.
The visual and verbal story of this beautiful art book describes how the Spirit of the Snowflakes, Daughter of the Dark, Children of the Light, Autumn Lady, Red Wing, Silver Butterfly, and Frost Princess in turns take over the delicate nature of the North until the moment when the eternal rhythm and magic that lies in the seasons has been born.
In addition to the book’s author Inka Tolonen and costume and textile artist Päivi Ruuska, Riina Laine, make-up artist and world champion 2014 in body painting and Elina Miettinen, performer in the American Ballet Theatre with several others representing the top class of their own field, have contributed to the making of the book.
