FINALLY! The book My and I have been working on for over a year is now published in Sweden! It’s called ‘Rullrån och tankebrus – En bakbok för livet och döden’ in Swedish which is kind of difficult to translate. It’s 319 pages thick, filled with My’s fantastic texts, recipes and illustrations, my photos and design by Emilie Crispin Ekström.
I’m extra proud of us for completing this book because we were both going through difficult times while making it. In October last year, my mother was admitted to the hospital for cancer treatment. She spent the next five months in the hospital. It was an emotional rollercoaster, from thinking she would make it to losing all hope. Over and over again. Sadly, she passed away just two days after we finished shooting. The name of the book felt even more fitting after everything that happened – ‘En bakbok för livet och döden’ means ‘A baking book for life and death’.
I just wanted to share some of my favorite photos from the book with you 🙂 If you’re located in Sweden you can buy a signed copy (in Swedish, but we are crossing our fingers for translations) directly from My here and if you’re located outside of Sweden, Bokus ships to most countries in the EU and some outside of EU too. I hope you like it <3
Congratulations on your book release! The photos are beautiful 🙂
Thank you so much Charmaine!!
Linda, the photos are lovely and I dare say a bit more whimsical than what we typically see from you. How delightful and it looks like it was fun to shoot too. Congrats on the book.
Also, sincere condolences on the loss of your Mum.
Stay safe and be well.
Thank you so much, Lisa! They are whimsical for sure, I have very much enjoyed trying something new 🙂 Thank you so much for your kind words and stay safe! xx
Photograph are stunning (as always). Looking forward to English edition.

I’m so sorry to hear about your Mum. It’s a tough time during and afterwards too. Be good to yourself my dear. Xx
Thanks so much Kelly, that’s so ver kind of you! xx

Blir helt knäsvag. Kan något så vackert få finnas i en bok tillgänglig för alla? Vackrare än de dyraste konstutställningarnas bilder som man bara kan få ta del av just där och då, och dessa kan man få bläddra i närsomhelst helst. Vilken privilegie ni ger oss!
Åhh, vad fint <3 Tack snälla Emma <3
Oh beautiful photographs Linda! Please let me know when there’s an English translation. I will buy it straight away!
Aw thank you so much Charlotte!! I’ll let you know for sure!
Has this book been published in English yet? If not has BLÅBÄRSSNÅR, ÄPPELSKRUTT OCH RABARBERSKUGGA?
I really really want one of these cookbooks because they look so cool and the recipes look delicious!
Hi Gracey! Neither of them have been published in English, unfortunately.. Still crossing my fingers for a translation! x Linda
Such wonderful pictures!! I am quite sad I don’t speak Sweedish, but I keep my fingers crossed to be edited in English as well. And sad to hear about your mother, may she rest in peace! Hugs!
Thank you so much Cristina! Sending hugs back! x

I live in the United States and I’m a huge fan of your exceptionally beautiful blog and photography. I would love to buy this book so much, but as far as I can tell it can’t be shipped to the US. Do you know if there is a way it can be shipped to the US?
Thanks very much,
Thank you so much Maria! That is so kind of you 🙂 Sadly it looks like Bokus (Swedish bookshop) doesn’t ship to the US.. We are still crossing our fingers for a translation! I’ll let you know if that happens!
All the best, Linda
