Friday’s Snapshot from the library …

January 9, 2015

I came this across this little book published in 1962 this week. While I don’t understand a word of Danish, without the joys Google Translate, the illustrations by Povl Christensen are self explanatory and a joy!

It would seem this item earned its place in the Mark Longman library because Danish, Povl Christenson (1909-1977) was not only a painter and illustrator who in the early 1930s joined the artists’ colony in Zealand known as the Odherred painters but mostly remembered as a highly proficient graphic artist, not only for his woodcuts and engravings but for his contributions to overall book design.
