Moomintroll (and an exhibition architect and a researcher) at the contruction site at Tampere Hall. All Moomin Museum's almost thousand square meters are going through a giant modification. Construction company Jatke has time just over a month until we take over the place. Extremely exciting - only three monts until the opening!!!

Back to the transfers! There're four different pictures: Snorkmaiden, Moomintroll and Little My, Sniff and Snufkin. The donater Eero Leinonen emailed today, that the print company Kromipainoteollisuus (earlier Kromipaino) had gone through their archives and found an original order of these transfers from 1956. Now we can be sure that they are from the 1950's as we thought. They were printed for Vaasan Saippua (1886-1987), a soap factory that made also e.g. candles, wonder if they did Moomin soaps or candles or both? The first commersial Moomin products were made already n the 1950's and products with these pictures were among them. #moominmuseum #moomin #moomintroll #tovejansson #muumimuseo #muumi #muumipeikko #kynttilä #saippua #candle #soap

#Repost @moominmuseum with @repostapp ・・・ Today the gender-neutral marriage law came in effect in Finland! We have a perfect drawing under conservation (yesterday we saw it still under weights) for the day: In this very drawing from the book Moominland Midwinter Moomintroll meets Too-ticky for the first time. And Too-ticky is a character inspired by Tove Jansson's life partner Tuulikki Pietilä. They do not only share the same kind of personalities, but also similarities in appearance and their names sound alike. Tove and Tuulikki met in the mid-1950's, and Tove wrote Moominland Midwinter 1957, shortly after their relationship had started. They lived together for decades, partly during the time when homosexuality was still consired a crime in Finland.

A Moomin artwork is under conservation. Literally under - the drawing is under weights because the paper has to be straightened. Tomorrow it'll be ready and we'll see which drawing it is! All those Moomin artworks, almost 400 of them, which will be seen in the new museum are being conservated. Two paper conservators work long days with them with no time for anything else (at work). #moominmuseum #moomin #moomintroll #tovejansson #conservation #museumwork #muumimuseo #muumi #muumipeikko #konservointi #museotyö

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. The original illustration is a book cover, which Tove Jansson painted for the French edition of Finn Family Moomintroll in 1968. The Moominvalley art mug will be in presale at the Tampere Hall shop May 9th onwards and soon after that in retailers. @arabiaofficial @moominofficial #moominmuseum #moomin #muumimuseo #muumi #tovejansson #arabia #muumimuki #moominmug

Aren't they awesome? One is able to take a close look at the Hattifatteners in the tableaux Escape from the Moominvalley with the detail photo taken by museum's photographer. Usually the artworks are in the exhibition behind the glasses or well packed in the storage. So with good documentary (photos) it is easy to reseach the Moomin tableaux and the imaginative work of Tuulikki Pietilä and Tove Jansson.

A detail from the tableau Flight from Moomin Valley. When a tableaux is being photographed also a lot of pictures of details are taken. Whether the tableau will be stored or displayed it is not possible or at least easy to get a close look at it, so it is very important to have good documentation.

Taking Moomin photos in the Moomin Museum is not as simple as taking Moomin fan photos. First the photographer has to prepare everything (lights, backround and so on) ready in the studio and get the object in the location - usually with the help of museum technician and conservators - and with the object once more adjust the lights and other details. Then it's time for serious shooting! After which starts the work with the tens of images which means some photoshopping. But the result is definitely worth all the work! Here's the photo of Flight from Moominvalley tableau.

7/10 Extra fame and honour in our photo competition Share your love of Moomins @colleene.carter has taken a peaceful traditional portrait of Moominpappa Fauni figure. Nowadays rare and valuable Fauni figures were the first commersial Moomin figures in the 1950's. The portrait reminds of those taken by Tove Jansson's brother photographer Per Olov Jansson, who also took portraits of Moomin figures - and often in the nature. As we know from the Moomin books, forest is a natural enviroment to Moominpappa, he seems to feel comfortable in the middle of moss. It's beautiful green colour in natural light gives a perfect background to this gentleman. #Repost @colleene.carter with @repostapp ・・・ #moominmuseum #moomin #moominpappa #fauni #forest #moss #portrait #tovejansson #perolovjansson #muumimuseo #muumi #muumit #muumipappa #metsä #sammal #muotokuva #moominlove
Wonderful winter weekend to all Moomin fans! 6/10 Extra fame and honour in our photo contest Share your love of Moomins. The Groke is not so popular character in Moomin photos, even though she is such an enchanting person. Luckily @eeditp took the Groke to a wintery evening walk on the iced sea - and the vehicle! Traditional Finnish winter vehicle, the kicksled! The Groke must have been ecstatic! The warm extra light makes an unusual atmosphere to the gloomy evening and brightens the red colour. And we all know that the Groke just loooves warm lights! #Repost @eeditp with @repostapp ・・・ Mörkö iltalenkillä #mörkö #muumit #muumilaakso #moomin #mūmin #muumimuseo #moominmuseum #tamperetalo #potkukelkka #merenjäällä #ilta #evening #tammikuu #january #suomi #finland #winterwonderland #suomi100 #muumi #groke #tovejansson #moominlover #kicksled #talvi #winter
Russian moomin fan Misha Molodec has shared a lot of Moomin photos in Facebook. The jury was especially pleased with the one with Moomintroll at the railway platform. In the photo Moomintroll is positioned as a bystander. He looks backwards as waiting for someone to get off the train, someone who has been on a journey, on the contrary to Moomintroll himself. Huge railroad cars go by the whole picture area to emphasize the meaning of travelling and the empty platform underlines the loneliness of Moomintroll. The simple composition and the soft hues of the photo build a delicate sense of melancholy atmosphere familiar from Moomin books. Misha Molodec wrote: when you deeply miss someone but there is nothing you can do about it. #moominmuseum #moomin #moomintroll #muumimuseo #muumi #muumipeikko #tovejansson #moominlove #moominlover #train #railroad #platform #travel #journey #juna #asemalaituri #rautatie #matka
