Elsa Beskow - Christmas





My mother read most of the Elsa Beskow books to me and my sister when we were children, they were our favorite picture books. Her pictures are so magical and romantic! I can't think of a better artist to represent Christmas (or at least Swedish Christmas)

Oh, which one is the snow king picture from?

Is it Ollie's Ski Trip?

Happy holidays!

Jen: I know the book as Olles skidfärd, but Ollie's ski trip is probably the translation ;)

Is this a English blog? Well, so cool that you have found those pictures! I have all the books of Elsa Beskow, but always wanted to have the pictures on the computer. Sorry for the bad language, I'm Norwegian. Haha.

Thanks Wren! :)
