Bluebird wins auction for Signe Johansen's HOW TO HYGGE

Carole Tonkinson at Bluebird has acquired HOW TO HYGGE by Signe Johansen, buying the book at auction from Sarah Williams at the Sophie Hicks Agency. Bluebird will publish in hardback and ebook in October 2016.

HOW TO HYGGE will be an illustrated four-colour introduction to the concept of Hygge - and how to adopt it into your everyday life. 'I'm thrilled to be working with Carole and the whole Bluebird team at Pan Macmillan," said Johansen. "This is a book I've wanted to write for a long time and now I get to share the culture and secrets of Scandinavian living.'

Carol Tonkinson said: 'I am very excited to be working with Signe. Her depth of understanding of Scandinavian culture and her terrific recipes and visual sense have come together in the perfect introduction to Hygge. I think she will find a ready readership of people who want to make the shift from kale to cake!'
