Nedslag i Kistas Historia by Patrick Lönnberg

I'm as much a local patriot as anyone. Having grown up in Husby, Stockholm, I naturally consider that suburb to be a present-day Atlantis; a shining beacon to the rest of the world, and all that. I'm sure you all can relate to that, substituting your own home for Husby, of course.

If you can read Swedish, and if you think Norra Järva is it - just grab the book from the author's home page and read it. I do, and I did. (5/5)

Husby being but a suburb (and a small one at that), it's not an exaggeration to state that there is not all that much information about it. The Wikipedia page is sparse, and the rest of the net doesn't have all that much about it either. It was therefore with joy that I found Patrick Lönnberg's Nedslag i Kistas Historia (Highlights of Kista's History).

As the title says, it's about Kista's history, not Husby's. Fortunately, since the suburbs are right next to each other, Patrick's book covers both to some extent.

In short, this is just a draft and isn't even a book yet - but I love it. Patrick has done a wonderful job of compiling photos and descriptions. If you can read Swedish, and if you think Norra Järva is it - just grab the book from the author's archived home page[a] and read it. I do, and I did.

Update 2019-04-09: I decided to go back and see if Patrick had turned the draft into a book, but instead I found out that he passed away 2016-09-06. The links have been updated to point to the archived versions at the Wayback Machine[b]. He was a teacher at Norra Real, and every year the student's association gives out the Patrick Lönnberg Grant, a grant in photography and contemporary depiction.
