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