Stig Lindberg... the book...




I finally got my hands on the copy of this Swedish treasure - Stig Lindberg book (Stig Lindberg - Tusenkonstnaren).
Squealing with excitement like a total Scandinavian design junkie (that I am) I've gone over all the pages several times... wishing I could read Swedish. It's Ok tho... because I see it the way a kid would - as an amazing picture book. Hard to imagine that this tremendous body of work belongs to one man. Feeling very inspired now:)

I have this book myself, it's absolutely fantastic. Stig Lindberg was such a genius, I love his stuff!
It's too bad that you cannot read the text, it tells the story of his life.

Hi Helen, I am a long time collector of Stig Lindberg (have a look at my website www.kirkmodern.com) I was lucky enough to see the retrospective in Stockholm and interview the curator. I have a translation of some of the catalog if you are interested I could send it to you.
