Thor Holvila 2311-15
"There are several kind of elves. Those who live by people's houses and help with the farm animals and protect them from danger, or cause them harm if the householders do not provide them with sacrificial food. Especially during the winter. But elves are everywhere. Here I have portrayed a beardless vätte, who is brown like the seaweed he lives among, admiring a seashell."

THOR ABOUT THE EDITION - JULETID
"We are now entering Juletid (Time for Jule), the darkest days of the year. Before Christianity came to Sweden, Jul was celebrated at midwinter and people sacrificed to house elves and locked themselves up to keep the forces of darkness out. Winter and darkness would be appeased so that warmth and light could return and people would keep the hope and faith alive that light would return, it was important to look forward. The Bible tells of Lot's wife who cannot let go of the past and is turned to stone when she looks back to see her city getting destroyed by the angels. Clinging to the past and not looking forward destroys hope, so carry the hope of a brighter future in your heart during these dark times and let's celebrate Juletid."
