Sommarnatt (Summer Nights) is full of animals, floral adorned ladies, mini palaces, plants and leafy foliage, all in Karlzon's signature style. The book flows on perfectly from Dagdrommar, with much of the same of what we've come to know and love from Hanna. There's a mixture of double page spreads and standalone images, more of the latter. Take a look at my video flip through below, or if you can't view video, I've also made a slideshow of images.
The format is also identical to Dagdrommar in size and thickness, with that same beautiful gold foiling on the front & back cover and the spine. They fit and look wonderful on the shelf together, Dagdrommar with its pastel green cover and Sommarnatt with pastel pink.
The illustrations are all great, none of them you could call filler or too samey. I recently made it my mission to complete Dagdrommar as my first totally coloured book- now I'm adding this book to that mission as it feels like a natural extension! Don't forget the English language versions of all Hanna's books are out this summer- but I kinda like having the original Swedish versions as it makes the book that bit more mysterious :)
Here's my finished picture, coloured with Staedtler Triplus and a bit of gel pen here & there. I added a black background in the end, which do you like best?
