Maker Profile

Tove Jansson

Tove Jansson is doubtless one of the best Finnish artists of all time and also the most widely read Finnish author abroad. Her lifework is immeasurably valuable because of the success she made as a writer, artist and as a cartoonist. She was a multi-talented artist who is mostly remembered as a creator of the Moomins. The Moomin books have been translated into about fifty languages.

In addition to the Moomin books and comics, she received recognition for her short stories and novels. Tove Jansson´s world fame is also recognisable because she succeeded to write for both children and adults at the same time.
