Laurids Lønborg

We love a challenge, and refuse to be beat. Yet on this occasion, we were finally ready to throw in the towel. In fact we even got as far as posting a blog to say we had, then straight back to update it, as we were alerted to this –

Described by many as a ‘rabbit hole’, hunting down any info on the Danish (Copenhagen, was as much as we could find) company Laurids Lønborg to understand more about their sunny 60s creations was consistently, painfully fruitless. We know that Lena and Al Eklund were responsible for the gorgeous illustrations. All of them, some of them? That we couldn’t answer. But this article is like gold dust. Congratulations to Helena Viale, author of this fine blog, for her superb detective work and her gutsy approach to contacting Eklund and finally telling their story. We salute you! Thank you
