We kiss goodbye in the morning and hello in the evening with such ritualistic regularity that if one of them somehow gets missed, I worry it means bad luck.

Accompanying the exhibition at Walthamstow Wetlands in is a downloadable audio piece and outdoor trail celebrating the work of Moomin creator Tove Jansson.
The award-winning William Morris Gallery will then stage an exhibition featuring original artworks and objects relating to Tove in Summer A short film about the Island that inspired the Moomin Stories. Built inthe Marine Engine House is an example of Victorian industrial architecture and is a locally-listed building.
Originally constructed to house the steam engine which pumped water through the reservoirs and supplied clean water to households, it has now been refurbished sensitively to retain its industrial feel and house the Visitor Centre, Cafe, Gallery, Viewing Terrace and Educational space. The Marine Engine House has also been redeveloped with a special tower to house nesting swifts and roosting bats. It features beautifully rendered and displayed facsimilies of photographs taken of Tove on Klovharun, quotes, and her own work including her nature studies and descriptions of birds.
Someone so fuelled by their imagination, so stimulated by the sea, so richly creative that they could find solace and inspiration in what to others might seem a barren rock.
