Tove Jansson

Tove Marika Jansson was a Swedish-speaking Finnish novelist, painter, illustrator and comic strip author. She is best known as the author of the Moomin books.

Tove Jansson was born in Helsinki, Finland, which was then a part of the Grand Duchy of Finland. Her family, part of the Swedish-speaking (Swedish: finlandssvensk) minority of Finland, was an artistic one: her father Viktor Jansson was a sculptor and her mother Signe Hammarsten-Jansson was a graphic designer and illustrator. Tove's siblings also became artists: Per Olov Jansson became a photographer and Lars Jansson an author and cartoonist.

She studied at University College of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm in 1930Ц33, the Graphic School of the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts in 1933Ц1937 and finally at L'École d'Adrien Holy and L'École des Beaux-Arts in Paris in 1938. She displayed a number of artworks in exhibitions during the 30s and early 40s, and her first solo exhibition was held in 1943.

Jansson wrote and illustrated her first Moomin book, The Moomins and the Great Flood, in 1945, during World War II. She said later that the war had depressed her and she had wanted to write something naïve and innocent. This first book was hardly noticed, but the next Moomin books, Comet in Moominland (1946) and Finn Family Moomintroll (1948), made her famous. She went on to write six more Moomin books, a number of picture books and comic strips. Her fame spread quickly and she became Finland's most widely read author abroad. In 1966 she was awarded the Hans Christian Andersen Award...

Tove Jansson. Litnya knyzhka. (The Summer Book)


The granny and granddaughter go for walks and talk about everything in the world: about birds and flowers, about God and fears, staying overnight in a tent and... And although they do not mention a word about the most important thing Ц about the mom's death and loneliness Ц love and mutual recognition permeate every minute of their little cozy summer.
