"Long live the illustrators! Hurrah for their work!" - Philip Pullman

Tove Jansson drew her first Moomin on an outhouse wall, before committing Moominvalley to the page in the 1940s. This book offers a fresh, insightful appreciation of her life and art, from imaginative child to art student, painter, author, cartoonist and illustrator, bohemian lesbian and Finnish cultural icon.

This hardback book contains 112 pages and 106 illustrations.
