Elsa Beskow Calendar 2018
Elsa Beskow (1874-1953), born Elsa Maartman in Stockholm, was a pioneering author and illustrator of children's books in Sweden - perhaps the best known of all Swedish children's book artists. Her books were inspired by her own childhood experiences, as well as those of her six children. Central themes were the relationships between children and adults and children's independent initiative. Her books are continually reprinted, and many have become classics. She also illustrated ABC books and songbooks for Swedish schools.
Elsa Beskow's picture books have been known and loved for more than a century. This monthly calendar is beautifully illustrated with seasonal artwork from her delightful books for children.
The 2018 calendar includes illustrations from Thumbelina, Ollie's Ski Trip, Around the Year, The Sun Egg, Peter and Lotta's Adventure, The Land of Long Ago, Woody, Hazel and Little Pip and Peter and Lotta's Christmas (all published in English by Floris Books).
