Thoughts and observations on the Swedish foursome

A greeting from the ABBA On Record designer

published January 24, 2024

I heard from the printer earlier today that ABBA On Record ( is now being printed, so we're getting nearer a finished product. Exciting! Everything is on track, so it seems the distributor will start shipping in mid-March 2024, as previously announced. More exact details will be shared as soon as I have them. In the meantime, the up-to-date info about the book and its distribution is available on the Basic Facts page.

So many people have been instrumental in making ABBA On Record a reality, and my most important partner for the past few months has undoubtedly been my fabulous designer Maria Nicholas. Just a few days ago she wrote the following lovely fan message about the project, which I thought I'd share with you.


Hello and Happy New Year (I think we can still say that for a few more days)!

Being an ABBA fan since 1979, like many of you, I have been immensely grateful for the incredible experiences we’ve all shared since the release of Voyage in 2021.

I wanted to take a moment and let everyone know that I’ve recently received and approved the printer proofs for ABBA On Record, the fantastic upcoming book authored by the one and only Carl Magnus Palm that I had the privilege of designing. This marks our second collaboration since 2017 and I couldn’t be more thrilled with the results. Everything looks great and the presses will be rolling very soon.

The book spans 456 pages and is a highly engrossing account of everything that happened around ABBA’s releases outside of the studio. The amount of research and new information shared by Carl Magnus is staggering! It’s a unique celebration of ABBA’s legacy, and I’m very grateful to be a part of bringing this incredible story to life. If you haven’t yet, you can buy the hardcover version, digital version, or both at

I can't wait for all of you to see and enjoy reading ABBA On Record as much as I have enjoyed designing it. Thank you so much for being a part of this journey with us, and stay tuned for more updates as we approach the release date.
