Tove Jansson‘s Moomin books are rare classics of children’s literature that combine really thoughtful and touching stories with beautiful illustrations. Aside from Jansson’s own books, there have been “licensed” books for very small children with illustrations based on the Japanese animated television show about the Moomins, but Jansson’s own books are the real deal. Here are some of her illustrations.
