Tove Jansson Dulwich exhibition closes with a deeply privileged preview…

Two mesmerising archive films taken by Tuulikki Pietilä of Tove and ‘Tuuti’ on their summer island, and travelling in Europe were shown by Club des Femmes, followed by an advance reading of a selection of letters sent by Tove to her closest friend and confidante, Eva Konikova, and to Tuulikki between 1941 and 1956. Below Ellie Kendrick (Meera from Game of Thrones) pauses in her reading of the letters while Sophia Jansson talks to Nicolette Jones from The Times about her aunt’s life and relationships. (Letters from Tove, edited by Boel Westin and Helen Svensson; trans by Sarah Death will be published by Sort of Books in autumn 2019).
