Today is not a Moomin Monday, because I scheduled it to fall on the 100th anniversary of Moomin author Tove Jansson’s birthday. And I have four Moomin cards to share with you, some from Postcrossing officials and some from the forum.


First is this Moomin card in celebration of Tove Jansson’s 100th birthday. The card says “Celebrate with us!” in Finnish, Swedish, and English. Tove Jansson was born in Helsinki in 1914, but studied in Stockholm and spoke Swedish. The Moomin books were originally published in Swedish.


This card shows a scene from Trollkarlens Hatt (1948, Finn Family Moomintroll in English).


This card shows the Little My and is a Valentine’s Day card. The text says “You have a secret admirer… me!”


And finally, a shaped card of Moominmamma. The text says “a warm hug!”

The stamps:
