The Little Book of Danish Design For Children and Childlike Adults tells fun and interesting stories about 50 Danish design icons. With a light touch and colourful and humorous illustrations, the book takes a fresh look at some of the many great Danish design objects that have been created for the home over the past century.

The book presents popular design classics by Arne Jacobsen, Finn Juhl and Hans J. Wegner as well as the LEGO brick, the Panton chair and a selection of new iconic products by Royal Copenhagen and Bang & Olufsen, among many others.

Marie Hugsted is a textile designer. She graduated from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts, School of Design in Copenhagen and is also a trained teacher.
