About Abe, the Advent Book Elf


Abe travelled to Tehran on a suped-up Kawasaki motorbike that he won during a dominoes match in a medina in Damascus on New Years Eve 2005.

While in Iran, Abe briefly joined a graffiti bombing crew and successfully painted a cartoon milkshake on the side of a delivery truck before being maced and clubbed unconscious by a large woman with dark eyes.

It was one of the greatest experiences of his life.


Here’s some stills from the book
