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.
