The girl’s name is Astrid, and she’ll grow up to become Sweden’s greatest children’s author.

Summer Exhibition "Björn Berg's Fairy Tale World - Emil and Many Others!"

This summer, you will have the opportunity to meet the illustrator Björn Berg (1923-2008) here at the Vicarage. This anniversary year, when Björn Berg would have turned 100, we celebrate him by showcasing his extensive and versatile artistic career.

The core of the exhibition is a rich collection of original illustrations and sketches. We display Björn Berg’s work from the first tentative sketches during his upbringing in New York in the 1930s, to the illustrations for children’s books that he created throughout his life.

Original images from the books Emil in Lönneberga, Q-dog, Pomperipossa, Musen Jenny, Killingen som kunde räkna till 10, and Teskedsgumman…

The exhibition was created by Björn Berg’s children, Maja and Torbjörn Berg, and will be on display at the Vicarage from June 17th to September 24th.
