Pippi med tårta och paket

Images and Illustrations

Many images are strongly linked with Astrid Lindgren’s work, everything from stills from the films to various book illustrations. Almost all of Astrid Lindgren’s books are illustrated; the chapter books in black and white and the picture books in colour.

For many people the characters are indistinguishable from the images that the illustrators created of them. In Sweden we think of the ‘right’ Pippi Longstocking as the one Ingrid Vang Nyman created, that Emil can only look they way Björn Berg drew him, and that Karlsson on the Roof is the small, not too chubby man in blue dungarees and chequered shirt that Ilon Wikland sketched.
