Olle Eksell

Today I thought I'd share some work of Olle Eksell (1918-2007), a Swedish graphic designer. I discovered him trying to track down the creator of this design:

apparently it was for a well known swedish brand, Mazetti Ogon.

I'd absolutely love to have a print to frame for my house.

Here are some of Eskell's book cover designs:

Cover design for Swedish literary magazine Utskit, 1948

Swedish Edition of "The Sheltering Sky", 1951

Eskell illustration in a Knitting for Kids book, 1958
