Happy 100th birthday, Tove Jansson!

Today is the hundredth anniversary of the birth of the great Tove Jansson.

You may well be aware of the Moomins; but she also illustrated Swedish translations of both The Hobbit and Alice in Wonderland.

We'll be showing this documentary about her at Loncon 3 this coming Thursday afternoon.

See you there?

Tove Jannson
Also a great writer of short stories for adults, that she took up after the death of her parents; and a fine modernist painter, although she was never feted for it. One of my heroes!
