The book also contains intriguing photographic material bringing a perspective all its own, including previously unpublished images. The photo editor is Carl Henning, and the attractive graphic design is by Sami Valtere. The editors are a distinguished trio: Lasse Lehtinen, journalist and author; Janne Virkkunen, former editor-in-chief of the largest Finnish daily, Helsingin Sanomat, and also a great-grandson of Sibelius; and Anna Krohn, General Secretary of the anniversary year celebrations.
There is obviously potential international interest in a volume such as this, and the book will in fact be published not only in Finnish and English but also in German (Mein Sibelius) and Swedish (Min Sibelius). All the language versions will be published on the composer's birthday just before the anniversary year, 8 December 2014. Jean Sibelius was born in Hämeenlinna, and appropriately this celebratory book is being published by two cultural bodies in that town: the Sibelius Birth Town Foundation and the 115-year-old publishers Karisto Oy.
