Lost [Lives Unlived]

A personal reflection on my journey through pregnancy and baby loss.
Following the urge to acknowledge the existence of our lost babies - too precious to deny or forget.
Talking about it means facing it fully, regretting - accepting - healing - slowly.
Remembering - always.



This book is an exploration of the delicate subject, about how to find healing.
It addresses why it is still such a taboo to talk about it and why this particular grief is often expected to remain private.
It aims to challenge this notion by breaking the silence and starting a conversation.

First published during Baby Loss Awareness Week, 9th-15th October 2020.
50% of all proceeds will be donated to Sands - Stillbirth & neonatal death charity.



"As a new year beckons this may well be the most important self-published endeavour I have reviewed in 2020 and one that absolutely embodies the power of the form in connecting creator and reader in ways that no other medium can. Critical evaluation feels superfluous here. If you read only one small press comic from everything published in 2020 then it needs to be this one." - Andy Oliver, Broken Frontier
(full review here: https://www.brokenfrontier.com/lost-lives-unlived-anja-uhren/)



The book is available in 3 different formats:

1st Edition - handmade Concertina Book | 13.6x13.6cm | 156 pages

2nd Edition - perfect bound Softcover Book | 14x14cm | 156 pages

German language version - handmade Concertina Book | 13.6x13.6cm | 156 pages

The content is exactly the same, only the book form is different.
All formats also include a copy of my 16-page mini concertina from last year - 'Sowing&Growing'.

My mum had a similar experience like the one that's been illustrated and she told me, she saw herself in the book on every single page. It's a stunning book, the colors are absolutely beautiful and the paper feels really silky. The ripped edges of the pages make you want to squish to book together so you can run your fingertips over the soft edges haha! The most outstanding part is the art in it of course. The story telling is lovely, and even as someone who hasn't experienced something like that myself, I cried a lot reading this. I absolutely recommend this book to anyone who loves art and raw feelings. I'm gonna show this off on my bookshelf <3

Delivered in safe packaging with lovely little details like gold paper wrapping and a personalised card. The printing quality is amazing, the colours all have a shimmery sheen that give the illustrations an added sense of magic. The story is heartfelt, emotional, honest, and raw. I myself have no experience with child loss, but I can imagine how much it will help others to figure out and articulate their feelings.

As a bereaved mother myself I recommend this book to anyone who wants to understand what it is like to lose a baby. Anja’s words and illustrations are absolutely stunning and I could feel her pain and her endless love for her angel babies through every pages. She created a beautiful book that every bereaved family should have in their library. ✨💜
