About Ottilia Adelborg:
Eva Ottilia Adelborg (6 December 1855 – 19 March 1936) was a Swedish children’s book illustrator, comics artist and author and the founder of a school for lace making. A literary award, the Ottilia Adelborg Prize, was established in her honor in 2000, and there is an Ottilia Adelborg Museum in the municipality of Gagnef.
Adelborg quickly became known as a children’s book illustrator, writing and illustrating over a dozen books between 1885 and 1920 and illustrating another dozen books for other authors. One of her best-known books was an alphabet of flowers, Prinsarnes blomsteralfabet (The Princes’ Flower Alphabet, 1892) that was strongly influenced by the work of Walter Crane. The title referred to the fact that at the time there were three young princes in the Swedish royal household.
