tove jansson: the illustrators


This book provides fresh insights and a deeper appreciation of the life and art of Tove Jansson (1914-2001), one of the most original, influential, acclaimed and popular illustrators of the 20th century.

Jansson’s Moomin books are examined in detail, as are her interpretations of such classics as Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, The Hunting of the Snark and The Hobbit, her humorous and political cartoons, her striking front covers for the satirical magazine Garm and her daily Moomin cartoon in the London Evening News.
