Arne Tjomsland was a master with the nail knife. In his hands, a small piece of wood turned into elaborate polar bears, moose and Eskimos. An award-winning grouse in whale's tooth gave work to war invalids who would otherwise never have made it onto the job market.
This publication is part of the award-winning book series that pays tribute to Norwegian designers who deserve a rightful place in people's consciousness. Norway has a rich design and craft culture that author Mats Linder has immersed himself in. The books are intended as an introduction to the background history and the designer's selected works.
The book has both Norwegian and English text.
