Comics historian and publisher Paul Gravett writes to alert us to a Belgian exhibit of art by Tove Jannson:

Popularised around the world through comic strips, the Moomin series is above all a rich and sensitive body of comic strip work, created by Tove Jansson (1914-2001), an essential Finnish illustrator and author. Initially published as novels, the Moomin stories appeared as comic strips in “Ny Tid” (1947-48) and in the” London Evening News” (1954-1959).

The exhibition produced by the Belgian Comic Strip Center allows visitors to discover the world of a major twentieth-century lady author, with a rich and extravagant personality, served by a refined drawing style which continues to charm her readers in more than forty countries.


Jansson’s work is published in North America by Drawn & Quarterly.

Comments

  1. You mean her comics are published by Drawn & Quarterly. Her prose Moomin books are published by Farrar Straus & Giroux, I think. (Both the comics and the novels are delightful, by the way.)

  2. I might go to that opening.
    I can get you pictures of that if you need, Heidi:
