Product description

Review

The fascinating back story of a beloved Finnish author (Economist)

Tuula Karjalainen's biography Tove Jansson: Work and Love would make a wonderful Christmas present for any Moomin fans out there. It's a beautiful book, densely packed with high-quality photos and illustrations, and provides fascinating context for the work of an artist/writer loved the world over for her timeless children's classics. (Independent)

It is highly readable, focused on human interest and generous with background information. Karjalainen writes a great deal about the loves in Jansson's life (Hufvudstadsbladet)

Tove Jansson: Work and Love is incredibly well written, and such care has been given to its translation. Lovely photographs and beautiful specimens of Jansson's art, all in beautiful colour, have been interspersed throughout. Karjalainen adds new information and thoughtful musings to the impression previously given of Jansson's life and work. (Nudge)

In the biography Tove Jansson: Work and Love art historian Tuula Karjalainen writes about the unique courage Tove Jansson showed (YLE)
