Not a Day Without a Line Drawn

Yesterday, we bloged about the Ingrid Vang Nyman exhibition at Astrid Lindgren’s Näs. Today, a new exhibition about another Astrid Lindgren illustrator opens, this time at the Swedish art, design and architecture museum – Bildmuseet – in Umeå.  The subject is the Swedish illustrator Björn Berg (1923-2008), the artist behind some of Sweden’s best known and most beloved book illustrations.

Björn Berg is known for the illustrations in Astrid Lindgren’s books about Emil in Lönneberga and Alf Prøysen’s books about Mrs. Pepperpot. This exhibition focuses on Björn Berg’s fairytale world, but he also illustrated history books and was for many years active as reportage artist at daily newspaper Dagens Nyheter.

Björn Berg has illustrated all of Astrid Lindgren’s books about Emil in Lönneberga, and one of his Emil illustrations is part of the ALMA logotype.

More about Björn Berg at the official Astrid Lindgren web.
