Mischievous Nature. The complete book of Tove Jansson illustrations for each of the Moomin novels.
All of the original Tove Jansson drawings and artwork for the nine Moomin novels in one book. No words — just pictures. There are some 500 illustrations presented in chronological order. The illustrations tell their own story; of the Moomin characters and their adventures; and of Tove Jansson's remarkable talent and career as an illustrator. We gave the book the title Mischievous Nature. It relates to the characters' rather irreverent behaviour and to the natural world.
Now a softback in green linen-textured cardboard. Inside there are 288 pages of illustrations and the book covers reproduced in colour. Some are printed so big they carry on around the page end and on to the next!
