Tove's tribute to her island refuge and the art of Tuulikki Pietilä

About the Author

The Finnish artist and author Tove Jansson (1914-2001) is best known as the creator of the world famous Moomin stories and as author of The Summer Book. For more than forty years she shared her life with the graphic artist and professor, Tuulikki Pietila (1917-2009). Klovharun was their summer island refuge.


'It's hard to describe the astonishing achievement of Tove Jansson's artistry' - Ali Smith

'The Summer Book's limpid style belies a deep psychological subtlety. It's about how people can live close together for months with tact and grace, and about how rich and rewarding even a small world can be.' - Melissa Harrison
