100 Faces from Finland contains a selection of significant individuals who, in their own spheres of life, have made important contributions to the development of Finnish society. The collection contains in equal numbers persons prominent for their contributions to society and representatives of the arts and sciences. The summit of political life is represented by the Presidents of the Republic, the less exalted ranks of society by church builders and hunters. Cultural figures known to an international public – from the architect Alvar Aalto to the composer Jean Sibelius or from the painter Helene Schjerfbeck to the glass artist Tapio Wirkkala – are also presented in the book.
