Our new website dedicated to Jo Hammerborg

In May 2011 we wrote a post laying out the few facts we had been able to gather together during ten years of trawling through books, magazines, research libraries, personal contacts and the internet for information about Jo Hammerborg’s life and work at Fog & Mørup, and appealed for readers with any further information to contact us. Today, thanks to the generous assistance of Jo Hammerborg’s family, we have been able to add to that original post (which you can read here) a considerable amount of new information, in honour of which we have built a brand new website at johammerborg.com. We hope you will enjoy it.
