11. Literature and Images


Literature and images: that is the theme we have chosen for this 11th issue of the Scandinavian newsletter. In a wideranging selection of articles we examine the relationship between text and image in different contexts. We examine text and image in a literal sense in four articles on Danish, Finnish, Norwegian and Swedish comic strips and the tradition in which they are placed.
