by Jonas Jansson & Andreas Theve
For almost two decades, artist Nils Sture Jansson illustrated posters for Gröna Lund and the acts who performed on its main stage Stora Scen. Who were many! All from mega stars with long and lucky carreers to whose who didn't quite make it.
In this book we have collected about 200 bands and solo artists who have earned to be portrayed by either telling a story or by simply being fantastic posters. Those posters have now become a memorial of those times when Gröna Lund was Stockholm's only place for bands from abroad to perform at, during the summer months. We wish you happy reading!
Nils Sture Jansson, born 1935, has been working in the advertising industry as an art director and illustrator throughout his working life. When he started illustrating Gröna Lund's posters 1971, the amusement park itself started to book pop and rock artists who were known worldwide. Nils Sture and Gröna Lund worked with each other for almost two decades, and sometimes a screen print says more than a thousand words!
This book is a cooperation between Premium Publishing, Gröna Lund and the artist's son - Jonas Jansson.
