El tema central de este Blog es LA FILOSOFÍA DE LA CABAÑA y/o EL REGRESO A LA NATURALEZA o sobre la construcción de un "paradiso perduto" y encontrar un lugar en él. La experiencia de la quietud silenciosa en la contemplación y la conexión entre el corazón y la tierra. La cabaña como objeto y método de pensamiento. Una cabaña para aprender a vivir de nuevo, y como ejemplo de que otras maneras de vivir son posibles sobre la tierra.

La artista Jansson Tove, la isla y la cabaña



Jansson Tove ( Helsinki, 9 de agosto de 1914, † ídem, 27 de junio de 2001) 


The writer and artist TOVE JANSSON (1914–2001) is best known as the creator of the Moomin stories, which were first published in English sixty years ago and have remained in print since. Sort Of began its association with Tove’s work by re-issuing her amazing cut-out tour de force, The Book of Moomin, Mymble and Little My, and we have since published the other two large format illustrated Moomin books, Who Will Comfort Toffle? and The Dangerous Journey. Each of these has been published with a new verse translation, created by leading British poet Sophie Hannah.
In her fifties, Tove Jansson turned her attention to writing for adults, producing a dozen novels and story collections, including the classic, bestselling The Summer Book. This was reissued by Sort Of and sold more than 100,000 copies in the UK. We have followed its publication with five further books, translated into English for the first time: The Winter Book (stories), Travelling Light, The True Deceiver and Fair Play. We will be adding a further story collection, Art in Nature, in 2012.




Sort Of is also publishing the first ever Moomins book – The Moomins and the Great Flood – in October 2012. This has never before been published in Britain.

Jansson Tove

Jansson Tove (* Helsinki, 9 de agosto de 1914, † ídem, 27 de junio de 2001) fue una escritora, pintora e ilustradora finlandesa de lengua sueca (la lengua sueca es minoritaria en Finlandia, pero se habla bastante en algunas zonas de costa).
Es particularmente conocida por su obra para niños, y sobre todo por haber creado los personajes de la familia Mumin. Estos figuran entre los grandes éxitos internacionales de la literatura de Finlandia, solo por debajo de Mika Waltari y el Kalevala.
Jansson pasó buena parte de su vida en una isla menor del golfo de Finlandia. Ilustró sus propios libros, pero también otros como El hobbit, de J. R. R. Tolkien, o Alicia en el país de las maravillas, de Lewis Carroll. 
En 1966 obtuvo el Premio Hans Christian Andersen de literatura infantil, por el conjunto de su obra.
