A hundred years, a hundred stories
As Finland marks its first century as an independent state, we stop to celebrate the larger-than-life success story of a rather small country.
FINNISH FINGERPRINTS throws the spotlight on people who have put a face to Finland´s success, and phenomena that are an essential part of who we are and how we have got here.
We have wanted to bring out achievements that have not just changed Finland, but also left an imprint – at least a Finnish fingerprint – beyond these shores.
In the stories and the many imaginative illustrations, Finland opens up to the reader as a mosaic. Each piece derives its significance as part of the larger picture.
