Notes from an Island

See all formats and editions

For thirty summers Tove and her partner, the graphic artist, Tuulikki Pietilä, retreated to the tiny island of Klovharun, a rocky outcrop in the gulf of Finland, where they would live, paint and write, energised by the shifting seascapes and the island's austere charms.

Notes from an Island, offers both a memoir of, and homage to, this beloved island home.

Tove's spare prose, and Tuulikki's subtle washes and aquatints, combine to form a work of meditative beauty. This edition includes the first UK publication of Tove's acclaimed 1961 essay/prose poem, The Island.
