Spara och Slösa (1933), by Birgitta Lilliehöök
Spara och Slösa (1933)

Birgitta Lilliehöök was a Swedish artist and poet. She is best known for her educational comic 'Spara och Slösa', that ran in the magazine Lyckoslanten from 1926 to 1963. The moralistic comic encouraged children to be economical. It has become part of Sweden's cultural heritage since the magazine, that was produced by a bank, was distributed freely in many schools. Lilliehöök was also active as a freelance journalist and writer for publications like Stockholms-Tidningen and Idun.

Since 1999, Lambiek presents the Comiclopedia as a free service to comic fans from all over the world. The database has expanded to over 12,000 biographies of international comic artists, and also has an extensive Dutch section about comics in the Netherlands.
For 15 years, the site was funded from the resources of our Amsterdam-based shop. However, the current economical circumstances make it difficult for us to maintain this service. At the moment the Comiclopedia's sole editor works for us free of charge, aided by a couple of (international) volunteers.
