This mug is the seasonal summer mug of 2013, and as such it was a limited edition. In its light blue and yellow tones the mug had similarities to the 2012 summer mug. A bowl with the same design was released simultaneously. The design of Snorkmaiden and Poet is by Tove Slotte, who also chose the illustrations from the original artwork, Tove and Lars Jansson’s comic strip #20 Moomin under Sail. Seasonal stickers have been used in the mugs since 2006.
