Finnish Folk Art

A teacher of mine brought this to my attention as she has just visited Finland. She mentioned that there are lots of old men living in the many woods of Finland that produce modern folk art. The link above takes you to a book just being released by Minna Haveri. It is her doctoral thesis in Finnish about this type of Folk Art. Unfortunately for the time being, there are no plans to release it in English but the images and blog it appears on is of much interest anyway.

Take a peek…



  1. Just to inform you that a translation of Minna Haveri’s dissertation is being prepared. So hopefully at some moment next year an english edition will be available.

  2. Thanks very much for this information Henk, hope this is of use for anyone else wondering about an English edition. As soon as you know of its availability I would love to find out, drop me a message Henk!
