Gustaf Tenggren

Do you read Swedish comics books aimed at children aged 3-9 years old? No? You don't know what you are missing!
The new issue of Bamses äventyr (#7) is out now and features a beautiful Gustaf Tenggren painting from the early 20's on the backcover. Titled "The Dreamer" and possibly previously unpublished! On the inside you get more of his art. The printing on the backcover is excellent but the pics inside are unfortunately a bit greyish.
Anyhoo, just look at the photo of "The Dreamer" above. The repro on the backcover is sooo much better.
You know you want it. Go get it!
