The Moomins are ever-popular favorites on Finnish stamps. This time Itella Posti Oy released a booklet of six stamps, called Moomin Favorites on 6.5.2013. The stamps illustrate philosophical Moominpappa, Moomintroll jumping in the water to swim, Moominmamma with her famous handbag, Little My balancing a basket on her head, Snork Maiden reading a letter and Snufkin dancing in delight. Each of the characters is depicted on a colorful background.
Satu Lusa wants to portray the vitality of Tove Jansson's drawings and the Moomin characters' zest for life. All the drawings in the booklet come from Tove Jansson's comic strips published in The Evening News in the 1950s. The shape of the stamps follows that of the Moomin characters.
