OK.This is not a book about Lighthouses.
Not a book for navigation, nor an encyclopedia.
.... it is kind of an ArtBook. OK!
As I have said earlier: during my lifetime
and the years I spent as a newspaper artist
I came to visit more than 300 lighthouses.
I made a drawing, it was published, and
then I archived it in a cupboard.
Most of the drawings are gone. Into oblivion,
given away or sold. (My wife went aground
just outside that rock! Her birthday is
Many times I have been asked: Will you
ever publish those lighthouses? Those drawings.
I would like to have them collected.
When the100th lighthouse was published
poster was printed And when the 200th lighthouse
was published another one. And before
that a book, text by Gert Malmberg.
All those items since long sold out.
This spring I have been looking through
what remains of the collection. I havegone through,
I have remade and I have scanned a few.
I have sorted the material out and so
I have collected 111 lighthouses in a book.

No publisher was interested. But there is Blurb.
And there it is just now. For sale. And in my backyard I got a few.
Enough of Lighthouses now?
At least for a while.
Well, here is a link to Blurb.
If you are interested.
