Excerpt: Tove Marika Jansson (.); 9 August 1914 27 June 2001) was a Swedish-speaking Finnish novelist, painter, honorary Professor of Philosophy, illustrator, and comic strip author. She was the author of, among other works, the Moomin books. Tove Jansson was born in Helsinki, Finland, which was then a part of the Grand Duchy of Finland. Her family, part of the Swedish minority of Finland, was an artistic one: her father Viktor Jansson was a sculptor, and her mother Signe Hammarsten-Jansson was a graphic designer and illustrator. Tove's siblings also became artists: Per Olov Jansson became a photographer, and Lars Jansson an author and cartoonist. She studied at University College of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm in 193033, the Graphic School of the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts in 19331937, and finally, at L'Ecole d'Adrien Holy and L'Ecole des Beaux-Arts in Paris in 1938. She displayed a number of artworks in exhibitions during the 30s and early 40s, and her first solo exhibition was held in 1943. Tove Jansson wrote and illustrated her first Moomin book, The Moomins and the Great Flood, in 1945, during World War II. She said later that the war had depressed her, and she had wanted to write something naive and innocent. This first book was hardly noticed, but the next Moomin books, Comet in Moominland (1946) and Finn Family Moomintroll (1948), made her famous. She went on to write six more Moomin books, a number of picture books and comic strips. Her fame spread quickly and she became Finland's most widely read author abroad. In 1966 she was awarded the Hans Christian Andersen Award...More: http: //booksllc.net/?id=4927
