Sággan mailmmit/Brodrade världar/Stitched Worlds is the second monograph on Britta Marakatt-Labba's artistry. Embroidered Stories (2010) followed her art from its debut in the late 1970s until 2010. This publication, the sister volume Stitched Worlds, guides to Marakatt-Labba's art from 2011 until today.
The book includes images of over ninety artworks, emphasizing the rich production of recent years. It also has a poetry suite by the Sami-Swedish poet Linnea Axelsson, an equally engaging conversation where the artist and writer Lena Ylipää meets the artist herself, as well as three newly written essays – by Sami-Norwegian cultural scientist Britt Kramvig, Inuit curator and art scholar Heather Igloliorte and the art scholar and writer, also the book's editor, Jan-Erik Lundström - who generously shares insights and insights into, perspectives on and knowledge of Britta Marakatt-Labba's artistry. Stitched Worlds is fully trilingual – Sami, Swedish, and English.
