    by Tove Jansson.

    The best picture ever. I've never seen anything that compares to this. The perfect capture of a certain soul scenary.

    Say. Anyone know anything about artwork rights? If I'd like to use this picture in an ... say... album cover...what would I need to do? The artist is dead, tyvärr, so I can't just ask her. And I bet whoever has the rights is pretty jealous about them, even though Moomins are almost finnish national property :D.

    So you obviously are addicted to those little furballs...

    The books are wonderful, and you really can read them year after year. And talking about an artist Tove Jansson: even though most people know her about the Moomins, she was also a great painter.
    About the copywrights:
    (as far as I remember...)
    The rights of all the cartoons and those japanese cheerful-moomins are in Bulls characters, or something..It's a big cartoon company, so I think they don't let pics to be used very easily...
    The rest of the pictures, characters, and maybe the stories are owned by the Moomin characters ltd. they may sell you a using lisence (it goes like that with "the usual artists", but moomins can be quite unusual) Or they can be at the original bookpublisher, Schildts...
    So anyway, you cant use without a permission (of course...) But I don´t know how easy it´s to get.
    Another thing is why you want to use it, at all?
    Those Right-things are awful, they have so many unveiled paths...
    By the way, does anyone know about the right´s in Internet? Can you just scan anything and put it to your pages? Or do you have to have a permission?

    Tove Jansson was genious, la grande artiste.
    That picture is awesome, the atmosphere takes my breath away.

    Supposedly the copyrights of that picture are owned by some other people [maybe relatives of Tove Jansson?] or some institute now.
    I wouldn't recommend to put the picture in an album cover without permission...
    Probably the rights are very hard to get, if at all.

    You Finns and your fucking Moomins, reindeer pie, half an hour of daylight per day and stinky liquorice rolled in salt. No wonder you are all crazy drunk bastards! I think I may be an honorary Finn... (You can keep the fucking liquorice though... I'd rather eat ass) :)

    No! ...Well OK I am. I read the books on my way to work every day :lol:
    No she wasn't. The paintings looked like she had been rectangular and rolling nude on a big paper :)
    Thanks for info. Using it was hypotethical... :D But because it's the best picture in the world! And the rest of it remains a secret :)

    (useless data follows: )
    The liquorice is called salmiac, or salammoniac. It's made by mixing hydrochloric acid and ammonia together. You can eat it from there, we did it on chemistry lesson in school. You just tried a wrong kinda salmiac. The salty stuff _is_ terrible :D
