To commemorate the opening of the new Moomin Museum in Tampere, a new set of stamps was issued in May, and I’ve just got hold of a set. They’re really rather nice, and the scans simply don’t do justice to them.

There are a few nods to Tove’s work with scraper board, a medium that she used constantly throughout her work, but most prominently onĀ Moominland Midwinter. As always, the stamps are presented in a little folder, and here they are in their glory.


If you buy them at the museum itself, you even get a neat little paper bag – probably a collectable all by itself!
