Our public domain collection is free for personal and commercial use with no attribution required, (though we love it when you link to us). We take great care to only make illustrations available that are either out of copyright, have no copyright protection, or have been dedicated to the public domain.
The creator died in 1953, so this illustration is in the public domain where the copyright term is the creators life plus at least 65 years.
It is important to state though, that copyright protection periods differ from country to country. It is your responsibility to ensure that the image is suitable for use in your country.
By one of Sweden's best-loved fairy tale authors, Children of the Forest by Elsa Beskow tells the story of a group of children that live in the roots of an old pine tree. Set over the course of one year, this book shows us the different adventures to be had in nature in all the seasons. You might recognize the red and white spotted toadstool hats, or friendly woodland creatures. Embraced by the Waldorf/Steiner philosophy, Beskow's illustrations are a heartwarming, imaginative take on how children might connect with nature all year round.
