Martta Wendelin is one of the most famous illustrators in Finland. She was born in 1893 in the harbour town of Kotka and she died in Tuusula in 1986. She had a long career, and is best known for her illustrations of the Finnish countryside, children and family life in children’s books, postcards and magazines. In the 1930s and ‘40s her idyllic, family-centred views spread to almost every home in Finland through the covers of Kotiliesi magazine. The popularization of her pictures with families was further helped due to the scarce availability of pictures at the time.
