Three generations have grown up with the work of Dick Bruna. What is it that makes his work so powerful and loved? The authors of this book summarize it as follows: “And with that we touch the core: Matisse’s gong, Cassandre’s punch and Bruna’s humanity.” Award-winning writer and illustrator Bruce Ingman looks at life and work by Dick Bruna with an international outlook. Ingman is also head of the Children’s Book Illustration Master’s program at Goldsmiths, University of London. Ramona Reihill has worked as a children’s book editor for many years, including with the English publisher of the Miffy books. Together they wrote a book in which all aspects of Dick Bruna’s life and work are discussed. Using unique material from Bruna’s private archive, it sheds new light on a life devoted to art, from his acclaimed poster and book cover designs to his beloved Miffy creation. IN DUTCH!
