The book also contains the story of how his two young heirs to the throne, Johan Hellström and Peter Hägelstam, managed against all odds with joint efforts to take the long-established brand to new heights. It is also a declaration of love to an art form, as well as a hymn to a profession that is about the joy of creating well-being through beauty.
