Tove Jansson’s The Hobbit

While others are getting all Moominized, I thought I’d take the opportunity to point out Tove Jansson’s drawings for The Hobbit. Charles Vess turned me on to Jansson’s work a few years ago. I’m glad he did, these drawings are funny and sweet and every bit as heroic as a highly rendered oil painting can be.
