The Story of Dimmalimm was written and illustrated by Muggur (Gudmund Thorsteinsson), the painter, in 1921. At that time Muggur was travelling around Italy where Gudrun, his sister, lived with her husband and their young daughter, Helga, in Pagli. Muggur wrote the story for his niece Helga but her nickname was Dimmalimm.
Earlier this summer the Story of Dimmalimm was published for the 10th time in Iceland. It has been published in many countries and compositions and plays have been written from the story.
