*SALE* Elsa Beskow Calendar 2017
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 calendar includes illustrations from Ollie's Ski Trip, Pelle's New Suit, Children of the Forest, Peter in Blueberry Land, Emily and Daisy, Princess Sylvie, Woody, Hazel and Little Pip and Peter and Lotta's Christmas. Special dates include the main US, UK, and Swedish public holidays. 12" x 12", shrink wrapped.
