Vår Pippi - Vår Vang

    Vår Pippi - Vår Vang

    Illustrator:Ingrid Vang Nyman
    Publisher:Astrid Lindgren Text

    A tribute to Ingrid Vang Nyman and the modern breakthrough in Swedish children's book illustration. In autumn 2016, the artist who gave Pippi Longstocking a face would have turned 100 years old. Although her pictures are widely distributed, she is strangely unknown. This is an illustrator anthology where famous contemporary illustrators write and draw about Ingrid Vang Nyman's significance for the modern image. A colourful, interesting and perspectival book. It is also unusual: Illustrators write about an illustrator. It doesn't happen very often.Many of Sweden's most beloved illustrators have shown their commitment to lifting a colleague who has had such a great influence on children's book illustration without getting his rightful place on the children's literature parnassus. Participants are: Anna Höglund, Olof Landström, Pija Lindenbaum, Eva Lindström, Jan Lööf, Emma Rendel, Ulla Rhedin, Matilda Ruta, Thomas Tidholm, Cecilia Torudd, Emelie Östergren, Siri Ahmed Backström, Anna Bengtsson, Karin Cyrén, Fam Ekman, Lennart Eng, Ann Forslind, Gunna Grähs, Fibben Hald, Håkan Hardenborg and Joanna Hellgren. Editor: Gunna Grähs, Ulla Rhedin

      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.
