On Friday night, at the so-called ‘Kulturnat,’ the exhibition space Frederiks Bastion, on Christianhavns vold, will open the exhibition “What’s This?”, showing original sketches and drawings for one of Tove Jansson’s classic Moomin stories in strip form The Moomin Trolls and the End of the World (1946/47). If I were in Copenhagen, this would be an absolute must — do go, this is incredible work!

Detail from Jansson’s cover to the Moomin book, Comet in Moominland (1946), on which the strip was based.
