In the future, a new land at the edge of the universe, Kolonie, has been discovered with untapped oil. With newly found resources,  colonization follows immediately with many hoping to make their fortunes. Dive into the story and let the wondrous visuals come to life through the eyes, hands and minds of artists Patrick Hanenberger and Christian Schellewald. 

A new class of spaceships were constructed to ferry settlers and supplies. Specialty spaceships also brought back oil and oil products in vast quantities. Kapitol, the main city on Kolonie evolved into a huge metropole and for over a decade its spaceport became one of the busiest in entire universe. When oil was finally replaced by more efficient energy sources, importing it from the Kolonie to the main planet ceased to be profitable.

emerges from the memories, travels, and life experiences the artists have shared through their friendship over the years. Each piece in the book is a recollection of an atmospheric experience - a sound, a feeling, or a journey. Every location is based on a real place previously visited by the duo and plays as important stages throughout.
