god jul - merry christmas by elsa beskow

Elsa Beskow was the illustrator that shaped my taste I think. The books my mother had loved as a child in Sweden were passed on to me and I poured over every detail and loved them too. --- I too Elsa Beskow.

1894 illustrerade Elsa Beskow för första gången i barntidningen Jultomten. Det var en svartvit teckning till visan ”Lilla vedhuggaren.”
