Product Description

A celebration of Tove Jansson''s legacy, one hundred years after her birth

Tove Jansson''s Moomin stories made her one of the most beloved Scandinavian authors of the twentieth century. Jansson''s whimsical tales of Moominvalley resonate with children for their lighthearted spirit, and with adults for their incisive commentary on the banality of everyday life. The year 2014 marks the centenary of her birth, and Jansson is being honored with events in Japan, Scandinavia, England, Germany, Russia, Australia, Italy, Spain, and France. Drawn & Quarterly is joining the festivities by releasing Moomin Deluxe: Volume One, a slipcased hardcover collection of the complete Tove Jansson-penned Moomin comic strip, replete with all of her most popular storylines and original pencil sketches.
It has been more than sixty years since the Moomin comic strip debuted in the London Evening News. By the end of its run in 1975, Moomin was syndicated in more than forty newspapers around the world and hailed for its light-handed, charming stories. The comics were revived in 2005 by Drawn & Quarterly and published to widespread acclaim, sparking a new generation of devoted Moomin fans with international editions around the world. Moomin Deluxe: Volume One celebrates the classic comics the world adores, and will feature an essay about Tove''s work on the Moomin strip.

From School Library Journal

Gr 4 Up—Considered a national treasure in Finland but best known in this country for her "Moomin" novels, Jansson did it all: picture books, children''s fiction, adult prose, and, in the 1950s, a series of comics about her most famous creations, the Moomintrolls. In honor of what would have been Jansson''s 100th birthday, Drawn and Quarterly has released a gorgeous slip-covered collection of 21 of her best comics stories, including "Moomin on the Riviera," "Moomin Builds a House," and "Moomin and the Comet." Written in comic strip form, but telling longer stories (most made up of 60–80 strips), the work introduces readers to many of the inhabitants of Moominvalley as the various stories unfold. The artwork and storytelling are sublime; concrete enough to appeal to children with a sophisticated wink that will grab teens and adult readers. The book''s introduction gives a brief overview of the history of Jansson''s comics as well as several testimonials written by current cartoonists on how influential her books were to them growing up, while back matter consists of original character studies for stories included in this collection. Recommended for libraries that have not already purchased the previously published individual volumes of the Moomin comics (Drawn & Quarterly).—Eva Volin, Alameda Free Library, CA

Review

“This single volume edition . . . comes with several full-page, never-seen-before character studies and sketches, runs to 400 pages, and weighs in at about 2kg . . . If you love Sniff, Snufkin and the rest, you''ll find it irresistible.” ―Guardian Best Graphic Novels of 2014

“Sixty years after their original serialization--and to celebrate Jansson''s centenary--the fanciful comic strip frolics of the hippo-like Moomins are collected together in one volume, handsome and big enough to hug.” ―Globe & Mail Best Books of 2014

“With a sincere childlike nature and a stoic acceptance of misadventure . . . Moomin and company--Moominmamma, Snufkin, Stinky and Snork Maiden, to name a few--emerge from each story full of tolerance and quiet humor.” ―The New York Times

“As a strip, there is nothing really all that much like Moomin . . . You could read entire anthologies of comic strips that do not contain the sadness and truth that Jansson gets into three panels there. That is ultimately Jansson''s real gift: stuffing so, so much into the tiniest of spaces. I can only imagine how world-expanding that would seem to a child. As an adult, it''s an overstuffed reminder of how horrible it is to crave simplicity.” ―National Post

“Tove Jansson . . . created a quirky, original comic strip masterpiece . . . Moomins are the vehicles through which Jansson explores everything that''s laughable, charming, laudable and suspect about being human.” ―Myla Goldberg, NPR on the Moomin Series

About the Author

Tove Jansson (1914–2001) was born in Helsinki and spent much of her life in Finland. She is the author of the Moomin books, including Comet in Moominland and Finn Family Moomintroll. Born into an artistic family―her father was a sculptor and her mother was a graphic designer and illustrator―Jansson studied at the University College of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm, the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts, and L’École des Beaux-Arts in Paris. In addition to her Moomin books, she also wrote several novels, drew comic strips and worked as a painter and illustrator. In 1966, she was awarded the Hans Christian Andersen Medal for her body of work. Jansson had a studio in Helsinki but spent most of her time at her home on a small island called Klovharu.

I was so excited for this to arrive and it was worth the wait. Absolutely gorgeous. Just lovely. The hard case is delightful, and the cover is embossed with a monotone Moomin. The introduction is in vivid colour and there is a free poster that I didn''t see in the product description. It feels like too little to pay for something so well made with love. For some reason I''m having this bizarre urge to buy another one just in case. If you love Moomin, you''ll love this. All the comics are there in the original black and white, nice clear print and sturdy paper.

This is a wonderful collection of Tove Jansson''s Moomin comic strip.....complete and all in one place. A lovely book, excellent quality and well worth the price. The added bonus is seeing her original sketches. I was not a fan when I bought it, just curious. I am a fan now. It would be nice if they put the remaining years drawn by her brother in a similar book.

This is a huge heavy book and all the illustrations are in black and white. I had never heard of this author/illustrator until buying two of the Moomin cups from Amazon. They are adorable so I became interested in what Moomin was all about.

Probably the best quality hardcover book boxset I''ve ever laid hands on (...there''s a lot of competition). Absolutely beautiful print detail, great quality cover and box (sturdy, smooth and colourful), perfect size for the illustrations'' sake. Includes an original poster inside, and 28 pages at the end dedicated to Tove Jansson''s character studies for the Moomin comic strip, annotated and in facsimile print (see pictures). A yellow ribbon keeps track of one''s page. Wonderfully put together, and will last over a lifetime. Tove would be proud. I''ve half a mind to buy several to give them as presents in years to come.

This collected volume really is delightful. It comprises the complete Moomin comic strips as drawn by their creator Tove Jansson, and best of all they have all their errors corrected. This I have to admit was something I was worried about as I know the individually published editions had a number of pages which contained errors, a problem which the publishers corrected by offering replacement pages to be sent to buyers. Thankfully Moomin is in all his perfected glory in these humorous tales of Moomin Mama and Papa, Moomin, The Snork Maiden, Snufkin and Sniff and the rest of the inhabitants of Moominvalley and beyond. The book is predominantly black and white (which is because the original strips were produced for newspapers) and thankfully nobody thought it would be a good idea to colourise them. This would have been a major disaster. All five original collections are included and they emanate a delightful mix of humour and gentle satire, played out beautifully in the delightful style of Jansson. Even in these fairly simple illustrations, the clean lines of her penmanship are a joy. No mark is made that shouldn''t be there and she captures light and texture so well in what can be a difficult medium to work with. The same can also be said of her writing too, the simple and yet pointed tales are also very poignant. Tove Jansson dearly loved the Moomins, and this comes across in her early scripts. But is interesting to know that she finally became enslaved to them. Although she was an accomplished illustrator and novelist, the public just wanted more Moomin tales until she finally wrote the last of her stories set in their Valley, a story in which they never made an appearance, and as she tired of her creation her brother Lars took up the comic strip, and his work can be see in other volumes. The Deluxe Edition itself is pretty hefty hardback (although I do think the paperstock could have been a bit thicker, especially as it is a deluxe edition) and it is bound in a primary red paper. On the front Moomin is embossed in a simple design and the look of the volume is quite elegant and understated. Inside the endpapers are the same bright images as the slipcase and a poster of the slipcase art is also included. There is a brief introduction where there are more enlarged colour works of Moomin and then the comic strips begin. In the back are a number of glossy pages with original character sketches on them. I have to confess that the bright slipcover and introduction do not feel like genuine Tove drawings but more like a pop artist interpreted them. The book would have been perfect if it had used some of her beautiful Moomin paintings, but I can see why they went for the more graphical images rather than watercolour ones. The book is after all about her comic strips, not her paintings. But I do believe that adding some of her other concept art would have really made it the deluxe volume it calls itself. One thing I was very grateful for was the strong well constructed slipcase. Wrapped in printed designs it is beautiful and looks great on a shelf. The stock photo shown by Amazon is not entirely accurate, the case side is narrower than shown and cropped more so that Moomin seems bigger. The spine is also not completely black but has a flower on the bottom of it, the lettering also does not read down the spine, but like a normal book. All in all I was delighted to receive this book and even at it''s full price it is cheaper than the individual volumes and you don''t have to worry about sending off of sticky pages to amend your books. If you are a Moomins fan then it really is a must, lose yourself in the delightful tales of Moominvalley, laugh good-naturedly at their exploits, but beware of the trolls! Many thanks for reading!

We are Moomin fans – our interest being stoked following reading of the Summer Book several years ago. We found the hardback versions of the strip cartoons in our local library, but had to give these back when our time ran out, and they would be shuffled off to another part of the county another Moomin fan to read. With this book, one can sit down and dip into any of the cartoons whenever you have just some free time: while it''s not exactly the same as waiting for the next strip to arrive in your paper, it is still a lovely reminder of the inhabitants of Moomin Valley.

I bought this as a gift, already having my own copy. The illustrations and storylines are delightful - the same familiar characters from the Moomin books but seen through a different lens. However, I had to return the first copy as it was shipped loose in a large box with no extra packing and arrived damaged. One edge of the slipcase had totally torn away. This might be poor design, I can see that over time my own has become slightly frayed in the same place, but it''s not the first large book I''ve had to return for a replacement. Well worth it for anyone who loves the Moomin family and their friends. The drawings are so full of detail.
