Tove Jansson and Tuulikki Pietilä

There are four links below

They found one another at the Artists’ Guild Christmas party in Helsinki in 1955…and their relationship gradually developed in the course of the following spring. “At last I’ve found my way to the one I want to be with,” Tove Jansson wrote in one of her first letters to Tuulikki Pietilä in the summer of 1956. ~Literary Hub
