Book Covers: Per Åhlin

There are new additions to our Flickr group called, quite simply: Per Åhlin.

"Per Åhlin is a Swedish illustrator and animator born in 1931. He is mostly known for his animations but in fact he was one of the most productive Swedish illustrators of paperback covers in the 60s and 70s.

This is an attempt to collect and document as many of his book illustrations as possible. However the group is called just "Per Åhlin" to mark that it is open for his other illustrations too."

So far the contributing members are P-E Fronning and David at The Klockarp Institute. Maybe you'd like to join as a member too? Contributing or not you are welcome.

By the way, that's also a great book - one of the rare examples of truly liberal soviet fiction dealing with rebellious youths in the 1950s/60s.
