From the conservator's table: The new Moomin mug's picture, the original cover for the French edition of Finn Family Moomintroll is a colourful guache. In the painting one can see most of the characters appearing in the book. In the front are Thingumy and Bob, whom the reader meets for the first time in this book when they try to hide the King's Ruby. They are alter egos for Tove Jansson and her beloved one of that time. One could think that the painting is bigger, since it has so many details, but it is actually quite small, only 12 cm high and 42 cm wide. Under the painting Tove Jansson had written some instructions for the publisher, it says e.g. Please send back when no more needed to: Tove Jansson, Ulrikaborgsg. 1. Helsinki 13. Finland, and then there's also some scale graphs for the book cover. The book with this beautiful cover was published in 1968. #moominmuseum #moomin #tovejansson #muumimuseo #muumi #muumimuki #moominmug #arabiafinland #taikurinhattu #finnfamilymoomintroll #tiuhtijaviuhti #thingumyandbob #konservointi #conservation

Such a beauty! A new Moominvalley Moomin mug was made in collaboration between Arabia and Moomin Museum.
