In A Hurry Books

Three classic movies in less than two minutes (Swedish)
With his characteristic drawings Henrik Lange is one of Sweden’s most appreciated cartoonists and illustrators. With the book 90 Classic Books for People in a Hurry, in which old and new classics each are summarized in four-panel comics, Henrik Lange created a completely new genre, the ‘hurry-novels’. People in a hurry can quickly cover literary classics as well as the great films and TV-series.
After drawing- and design education, like comic strip drawing school, animated film at Konstfack (Swedish University College of Arts, Crafts and Design), web design and marketing, Henrik Lange has established himself as a freelance illustrator and cartoonist. His illustrations can be seen in the large newspapers as well as in a number of smaller magazines, on web sites and in anthologies. Henrik Lange has also written and illustrated his own children’s books and illustrated books for other authors. He has been rewarded a number of awards and scholarships from Sveriges Författarfond (The Swedish Authors’ Fund) and Tecknarnas fotokopieringsfond (Illustrators and Graphic Designers).
Henrik Lange’s seemingly simple comic strips always have a double meaning and his ability to catch large contexts as well a small details is characteristic for his style. At the ceremony for the prestigious and important ALMA Award 2015, given to the South African reading promotion project PRAESA, Henrik Lange made a heartwarming and informative animated presentation video.
