On the occasion of the 150th anniversary of Albert Bonniers Publishers, this exhibition focuses on their instrumental role in establishing a mutual relationship between artists and books. Bonniers Publishers, highly renowned in Sweden, often drew from the talents of Sweden’s most prominent artists to illustrate their books, book covers, and title pages. This book catalogs the 138 works included in this exhibition from artists such as Carl Larsson, Bruno Liljefors, Yngve Berg, Birger Lundquist, Isaac Grünewald, and Georg Pauli, to name a few. A perfect opportunity to view the talents of these superb artists in an atypical, but similarly intriguing, medium.
