Abba were one of the biggest global pop phenomena of the 1970s. Their 1974 Eurovision win led to a string of hits around the world, and in recent years their music has enjoyed a huge revival. But despite their global fame and the continuing fascination with all things ABBA, the group have never before given their blessing to an official book - until now. This book features more than 500 colour photographs taken by Anders Hanser, a close friend of the band who has had unprecedented access over more than twenty years. The authoritative text is by Carl Magnus Palm, recognized as one of the world's foremost ABBA historians, who paints a vivid portrait of the world within ABBA's inner circle of friends and colleagues.
