book covers

Collected book covers in museum De Buitenplaats in Eelde, currently showing an exhibition of Dutch writer Dick Bruna. Bruna is best known for his children's books with Miffy (in Dutch known as 'Nijntje'), however he also illustrated and designed book covers, posters and promotional materials for his father's publishing company A.W. Bruna and Zoon. His most recognized illustrations were for the 'Zwarte Beertjes' series of books, including The Saint, James Bond, Simenon, and Shakespeare.

3 opmerkingen:

  1. Interesting how they all work together to form a single piece.

  2. Ja, de "Zwarte Beertjes" was een begrip vroeger. Wie had ze niet.

  3. I expect my parents would have known his work. Interesting patterns in this collage.


Don't be shy and leave a comment. I'd love to read what you think!
