Daniel Doppsko and Krakel

Almost like Christmas Eve here today. In my hands I have a newly released book by Lennart Hellsing (text) and Stig Lindberg (Illustration), Daniel Doppsko. The book was first published 1959 with black and white images. This edition has recently been restored with color versions of Stig Lindberg‘s illustrations. Publisher, Nisses Böcker.

Illustration by Swedish design icon Stig Lindberg.


Also I got a box of books by Lennart Hellsing (text) and Poul Ströyer(illustration) about Krakel Spektakel (I’m sure you know this earlier Krakel book).

Picture above from Daniel Doppsko. Happy me!

  17. Part of these illustrations remind me of Dutch illustrator Fiep Westendorp. Beautiful details and great use of color. Such a shame not more of these fabulous books are being published.
