The Moomins

“I lived on this great big housing estate in suburban Liverpool, from a working class background, and somehow this bohemian, upper middle-class, Finnish lesbian eccentric felt like she was speaking directly to me.” Frank Cottrell Boyce.

Tove Jansson, writer, artist, creator of the Moomins (in picture above) was born in Helsinki in 1914. She was great. Just great.

You can see the whole piece here.

The square was cut from a BFI leaflet.
