Bokunge blog

Headers and portraits for a Swedish blog about children's books, Bokunge.
This header didn't get used, but I like how it turned out:

This is header they went with, sans type, because I liked the little scene in the background. Dreamy! You can see it with type on their blog...

Portraits! They further confirmed my suspicion that everyone in Sweden is ridiculously attractive...
