June 2011



Have you been busy taking original shots of Copenhagen, its people, its animals, its parks or its design? The Copenhagen Book is organising a photo competition where the winner will receive a copy of one of The Copenhagen
Quartet books with a special dedication from the author himself, Thomas E. Kennedy.

The Copenhagen Quartet comprises four independent novels about the souls and seasons, the light and jazz and serving houses of the Danish capital. Each volume can be read independently or all four can be read together, consecutively, or in any order the reader might wish - although the first of the four, Kerrigan's Copenhagen, A Love Story (2002), contains a wealth of information about the city that establishes a background of the Danish history and culture.

All four books from the original Irish edition can be bought at The Booktrader in Skindergade 22 in Copenhagen and the new US and UK editions - so far the first two titles - can be bought at Atheneum.

Submit your photos electronically to:

Maximum 5 photos per participant.

DEADLINE: August 1st, 2011

The three finalists will also have their photos displayed on The Copenhagen Book website and facebook page.

Welcome to HOTEL RUSTHÅLLARGÅRDEN. The oldest part of the hotel was built as early as 1675 when a tower from
Krapperup Castle was torn down and the remaining big grey stones were used for the foundations of the present building. In 1892, the old farm was transformed into Hotel Arild. In 1904, the present owners took ownership of the hotel and changed the name to Hotel Rusthållargården.

Today, it is a unique countryside hotel with a fantastic view of the fishing harbour of Arild and Skälderviken. Arild is an idyllic location situated in the middle of Kullaberg's unique natural habitat, only a 30-minute drive from Helsingborg.

All rooms are individually designed to create a cosy, countryside atmosphere. In addition to the 25 rooms in the main building, the hotel also consists of 3 villas with another 22 rooms. The sea facing rooms all have balconies. In one of the villas, Kaptensvillan, you will find a beautiful and relaxing area with pool, Finnish sauna, steam sauna and Jacuzzi.

The food has always been an integral part of the hotel's existence and for several years in a row, Rusthållargården has received acknowledgements for the best tables in Sweden and in the Nordic countries.

Bernstorff Palace Gardens are large, wooded gardens laid out in the late 1760s in the Anglo-inspired Romantic style. With their expansive lawns, and oak and beech woods, the gardens are ideally suited to taking a healthy walk. The superior,more luxurious area of the gardens features a rose garden, an orchard, greenhouses and a teahouse.

THE SWEDISH VILLA is located on the lawn just north of the palace and is a classic example of Sweden's
wooden architecture. Queen Louise noticed this charming yellow villa at the famous

Nordic Agriculture and Art Exhibition of 1888 and liked it so much that she bought the villa and had it rebuilt in the palace gardens as a guest residence. Today, the villa is used for cultural events and as a café, which serves as a popular meeting place for garden visitors in the summer. Here you can drink a cup of coffee or tea as you enjoy the views of the palace gardens.
