Badin's Diary: An English Translation is Online!

3 likes

Hej vänner (Greetings friends):

We finally did it! Badin's Diary: An English Translation, is online as an ebook and hard-copy. Of course the ebook is free. However the hard copy is not.

This is such a wonderful moment for me, personally. As a man of mixed Swedish and African ancestry, I find Badin to be an awe-inspiring person. I have been so fascinated by him, that I have written an historical fiction graphic novel about him as a child (it is titled Badin and the Secret of the Saami). You are invited to follow the Black Rhino Illustration blog and Facebook page for updates during the illustration process.

Thank you again for your donations to make this possible. We have a little under $100 remaining. I plan to use that to send a hard-copy or two to Uppsala University and or another library in the United States.

Please free free to download Badin's Diary: An English Translation and share the good news!

FYI, the hard copy is being sold at-cost. I make no profit. Here is a screen shot of the cost at the printer:
