Overview

A celebration of Tove Jansson's legacy, one hundred years after her birth

Tove Jansson's Moomin stories made her one of the most beloved Scandinavian authors of the twentieth century. Jansson's whimsical tales of Moominvalley resonate with children for their lighthearted spirit, and with adults for their incisive commentary on the banality of everyday life. The year 2014 marks the centenary of her birth, and Jansson is being honored with events in Japan, Scandinavia, England, Germany, Russia, Australia, Italy, Spain, and France. Drawn & Quarterly is joining the festivities by releasing "Moomin: The Deluxe Anniversary Edition," a slipcased hardcover collection of the complete Tove Jansson-penned "Moomin "comic strip, replete with all of her most popular storylines and original pencil sketches.
It has been more than sixty years since the "Moomin" comic strip debuted in the "London Evening News." By the end of its run in 1975, "Moomin" was syndicated in more than forty newspapers around the world and hailed for its light-handed, charming stories. The comics were revived in 2005 by Drawn & Quarterly and published to widespread acclaim, sparking a new generation of devoted Moomin fans with international editions around the world. "Moomin: The Deluxe Anniversary Edition" celebrates the classic comics the world adores, and will feature an essay about Tove's work on the "Moomin" strip.
