    Ingrid Vang Nyman - en biografi (Swedish)

    Author:Lena Törnqvist, Sara Schwardt
    Publisher:Astrid Lindgren Text

    "With her drawings, she contributed to "a revolution in the nursery". Despite that, few people know about her and that she was also responsible for the pictures in the reading book that in the 1940s and 50s taught tens of thousands of children to read. Who was the artist, where did she come from and where did she go?This is the book about Ingrid Vang Nyman (1916–1959) and her fate.Ingrid Vang Nyman was born into a well-to-do Danish family and through marriage she came to move in the inner circles of Swedish cultural life. The book is about artist life in Stockholm during the last war years, about successes and breakthroughs, but also about doubts, physical and mental illness. And about a publishing world that was not ready to meet such a radical cartoonist and her demands.Lena Törnqvist is Sweden's foremost Astrid Lindgren expert and the same year as Pippi Longstocking. From an early age she was fascinated by Vang Nyman's illustrations, which followed her through her upbringing and later also into her professional life."

      Astrid Lindgren in Norway

      The first to bring Astrid Lindgren's books abroad was the publisher Damm & Søn in Oslo, with their Norwegian edition of "Pippi Longstocking" already appearing in 1946. This marked the beginning of a long-standing relationship. Today, most of her books in Norway are published by Cappelen Damm, a publishing house formed through the merger of Cappelen and Damm. Astrid's book adaptations into films also became popular in Norway, as did her famous songs. One of Astrid Lindgren's favorite books was "Hunger" by the Norwegian author Knut Hamsun; she often mentioned it as one of her greatest reading experiences.
