Moominmamma is baking a cake, Moominpappa is sailing and everything is like it should be.
We made a wordcloud using the original Swedish text in the Moomin book Moominvalley in November from 1970 to find out what are the 100 most used words in the book. So here goes.
There are more wordclouds coming and if you’re interested in the book, it’s available in Moomin.com’s webshop.
The Tove Jansson exhibition at Ateneum Art Museum
This upcoming major exhibition covers all the periods in Tove Jansson’s (1914–2001) productive career, including her surrealistic paintings of the 1930s, modernist art of the 1950s and more abstract works in the 1960s and ‘70s, as well as her satirical anti-war illustrations for the magazine Garm, her monumental paintings for public spaces, and of course Moomin characters and stories.
Mark your calendar for March 14th. You don’t want to miss this one.

We have something special for you folks - the very first glimpse of the new animated film Moomins on the Riviera.
The new poster:
A first look at Moomins on the Riviera
We wanted to give you a first glimpse of the new film Moomins on the Riviera and at the same time show you how it matches the original artwork.
The original comic strip about Moomin and his family on the Riviera was published in 1955 by the newspaper The Evening News. For many, this was their first contact with the Moomins and it was a great success.
When making the film, the creators have stayed true to the original style of the comic strip and we are very much looking forward to seeing the rest of it.
Psst.. click the arrows on the side of the image to see more. Or see them all on our blog.

I love borders. August is the border between summer and autumn; it is the most beautiful month I know. Twilight is the border between day and night, and the shore is the border between sea and land. The border is longing: when both have fallen in love but still haven't said anything. The border is to be on the way. It is the way that is the most important thing. Tove Jansson
