Tove Jansson: The Memoirs of Moominpappa (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!
In The Memoirs of Moominpappa, the Moomin patriarch regales us with stories from his heady youth, before he had a family. We learn of his lonely childhood in the Moomin Foundling Home, and his adventures at sea. This book also features the only appearance of one of the greatest underrated Moomin characters: the grumpy sea-monster Edward the Booble!
A beautiful gift for a Moomin fanatic, or for an as-yet-uninitiated-soon-to-be Moomin-fanatic.
