  • Norvik Press is looking for artists, designers, and/or illustrators interested in producing new illustrations for the English translation of Selma Lagerlöf's Nils Holgersson's Wonderful Journey (translated by Peter Graves).
  • By the end of 2012 Norvik Press will make a new addition to its 'Lagerlöf in English' series, publishing the first comprehensive English translation of the internationally renowned Nils Holgerssons underbara resa genom Sverige (Nils Holgersson's Wonderful Journey, 2 volumes). Numerous illustrated editions of this book have appeared in Swedish since 1906-1907.
