Eric Palmquist

Eric Palmquist (1908-1999) produced the illustrations for Rasmus and the Vagabond, amongst others. For that book Astrid was awarded the H C Andersen Medal in 1958. The illustrations are certainly worthy of the prize-winning book.

The books by Astrid Lindgren which Eric Palmquist has illustrated are: Bill Bergson and Rasmus (1953), Rasmus and the Vagabond (1956) and Rasmus, Pontus and Toker (1957).
