Hyperborea

Hyperborea was the “Land beyond the North Wind” for the Ancient Greeks. Was it real to them and does that matter? Our mythology often shapes our reality despite the assumption that only the reserve is true.

For Ada, Hyperborea is the land beyond human company—a realm sometimes called solitude and sometimes called loneliness. Like most places—both real and imagined, both literal and mystical--Hyperborea changes over time. Its topography is written in the brush-strokes of love, grief, language, and routine. And its creator? Ada. And, in equal measure, not Ada at all.

Explore lyrical essays and arresting artwork in this newest collection from Ada’s World.






Hyperborea is my first new title published by Blue Forge Press. It's a "grown up picture book" in that it blends both full-color illustration with short, meaningful essays. At times the images inform the writing and others, the illustrations compliment and sometimes contrast the text. -David Mecklenburg
