Frida and The Official Book!

20 09 2013



“I am thrilled with all of these pictures, some of which I am seeing now for the very first time. The book provides a real trip down memory lane” says Frida after going through the layout of ABBA The Official Photo Book. The regular book-store edition will be available in spring 2014. We are overjoyed with the response to the launch of The Super Trouper Limited Collectors’ Edition of the book – thank you! And to those of you who are wondering – yes, that’s Benny and Frida flying the helicopter (with a little help from a pilot)

6857501c96916f41b39d7e179d80215cFor the first time ever — a major authorised photo book on the lives and the fabulous career of ABBA and its members. We are proud to present a lavish limited edition – including the opportunity of having your name published in the book!

ABBA – THE OFFICIAL PHOTO BOOK is the first authorised and official photo book about one of the greatest pop groups of the 20th century. The group has sold almost 400 million records, in some markets topping The Beatles, and still selling millions every year!


“I am thrilled with all of these pictures, some of which I am seeing now for the very first time. The book provides a real trip down memory lane” – Frida.


The book has the full co-operation of Björn, Benny, Frida and Agnetha, who have contributed a foreword. This extraordinary book contains more than 600 pictures, more than 100 of which have never previously been published.


See images from the pre-ABBA years, the formation of the band, ABBA’s incredible rise to success with their break-through at the 1974 Eurovision Song Contest in Brighton and the rocket ride to global super-stardom that followed. Private photographs are included as well as unpublished pictures by famous press photographers, alternative shots from album cover shoots and behind-the-scenes pictures from the major tours.


There are photographic insights into their subsequent careers as well as brand-new photographs of the four band members taken during the last few months.


Take an exclusive look inside the book here.


ABBA have chosen to work with Max Ström, one of Europe’s finest illustrated publishers, to produce this official book. Award-winning picture editor Bengt Wanselius and Petter Karlsson, one of Sweden’s most talented writers, scrutinised almost a quarter of a million pictures to bring you this unique collection.


The regular bookshop edition of the book will be published in April 2014, as ABBA and their fans celebrate the anniversary of that fantastic Eurovision Song Contest triumph. This lavish coffee-table book has more than 400 pages and is in the format of a classic LP. It is printed on high quality matt art paper and is designed by Patric Leo who also designed Benny Andersson’s latest records.
