old finnish books.

I have been collecting a lot of old books from secondhand book shops in Helsinki - plus I have also been gifted with many by Jacopo and his finnish family.
I think it's a good time to share here some of the most beautiful pages I have chosen to scan from the bookshelf.
♡ ♡ ♡

✻ my first finnish book about birds.

✻ my finnish Muumi book from Jacopo.

✻ a guide about birds from Jacopo.

✻ an illustrated book about domestic animals from Kyllikki and Matti.

✻ an useful pocket guide about finnish natural environment.

✻ a peculiar book of words.
not only these old books have beautiful pictures but they are also a good way for me to learn finnish concerning my favourite topics.
P.S. I am looking for a special book called "Kani Andersson matkustaa" by finnish author Uma Aaltonen - do you know where to find a copy?


  1. Vademecum is the best.
    Among with the other books ;)

    These old books are just true beauty!

  2. i totally love the book with the writings, the las tone. how beautiful it is! (well all of them are ofc but this one is my favourite.)

  3. "vademecum" is certainly the most useful? and the one with the writings is absolutely sweet. I don't know if it was meant for kids to exercise for a nice handwriting... anyhow it's very peculiar!

  4. aww ma che meraviglia *-*
    sono davvero tutti bellissimi
    quello degli uccellini poi ha dei disegni tenerissimi *-*

  5. lo sapevo che ti sarebbero piaciuti emi :) tra poco li potrai sfogliare <3

  6. gli abecedari sono sempre bellissimi, e questo è proprio speciale,avendo delle illustrazioni cosí fini per rendere elementi cosí concreti .. mi piacerebbe tanto trovarne in tedesco..
    che bel tesoro!

  7. grazie :) penso anch'io che siano bellissimi! ti auguro di trovarne uno in tedesco presto!
