Tove Jansson: Comet in Moominland (Hardback Collectors' Edition)
We are very excited to stock these new hardback collectors' editions of Tove Jansson's original Moomin novels, lovingly restored to their original designs. These beautifully finished books are faithful to their original 1950s and '60s cover art and layout. Each one has a fully illustrated paper jacket, and an embossed linedrawing on the hardcover underneath. In everything from their font to their endpaper designs, these books are objects of beauty!
Comet in Moominland is one of the first Moomin books ever, and the most adventurous of them all. When mysterious signs start to appear of a strange star with a tail, young Moomintroll and his friend Sniff set off to consult the professors in the distant Lonely Mountains. Along the way they meet friends who will become key characters in the series, including Snufkin and Snorkmaiden.
A beautiful gift for a Moomin fanatic, or for an as-yet-uninitiated-soon-to-be Moomin-fanatic.
