If you grew up in Denmark you will almost certainly know this lovely image of cats playing and having fun at the little farmhouse at dusk.
The artist of the poster, Ib Spang Olsen (1921-2012), was a Danish cartoonist and illustrationsit and many of his works appeared in children's publications. The image on this poster was used in a very popular nursery rhyme called "Halfdan's ABC" (by fellow Danish artist Halfdan Rasmussen) and Ib Spang Olsen made the book a national treasure. However, this poster is an exhibition poster called "Drawings and Graphics" which was set up in Lyngby - north of Copenhagen, Denmark.
In 1972 Spang Olsen was awarded "The International Board on Books for Young People" which is the highest recognition available to a writer or illustrator of children's books.
