Special Collectors’ Hardback Editions Lovingly Restored to Original Designs. Sort of Books have produced beautiful collectors’ editions of all eight of the classic, and world famous, original Moomin novels. The first four will be published October 2017 in time for Christmas, with four to follow in 2018. Special features include original 50s and 60s cover artworks, fold out maps and gorgeous endpapers. We’d challenge a hemulen to pay more attention to the details – even the fonts are as close as possible to those used in the 50s. Images have been rescanned from the archives and careful revisions and special touches made by Tove, such as tiny running head commentaries on each page, are included for the first time. These are titles that will transport grown-up Moomin fans to the books they read in childhood, and provide the perfect gift for readers aged 7 to 107. These timeless stories with their love of nature, kindness, inclusiveness and a respect for the freedom and creativity of others, have a unique and enduring appeal.
