Tove Jansson’s Illustrations for The Hobbit

Thanks to commenter Dr. Nick for making me aware of these terrific pictures. I’ve posted before about Tove Jansson’s classic Moomin books, but didn’t know she had made illustrations for a 1963 Swedish-language edition of The Hobbit. Blogger zepe has the complete illustrations from his own edition posted. Here are a few of them.
