SORT OF BOOKS Proudly presents the complete set of Tove Jansson’s MOOMIN SPECIAL COLLECTOR’S EDITIONS.
Special features include original 50s and 60s cover artworks, fold out maps and gorgeous endpapers. We’d challenge a hemulen to pay more attention to the details – even the fonts are as close as possible to those used in the 50s. Images have been rescanned from the archives and careful revisions and special touches made by Tove, such as tiny running head commentaries on each page, have been restored using first editions.
These are titles that will transport grown-up Moomin fans to a world they discovered in childhood, and provide the perfect gift for readers aged 7 to 107.
These timeless stories with their love of nature, kindness, inclusiveness and a respect for the freedom and creativity of others, have a unique and enduring appeal.
