Item description for Dick Bruna by Joke Linders...

Dick Bruna (1927) has become well known as a graphic designer due to his creation of Nijntje, who has conquered the world outside the Netherlands under the name of Miffy. It is much less widely known that he has many other artistic qualities as well. This book shows the many different facets of Dick Bruna's work as an artist, an illustrator and a designer. Not only Dick Bruna's qualities as an author of children's books are discussed, but also his skills as a writer in other fields. Attention is also focused on the development of other media in which he has worked, such as animations and merchandising. The book includes a contribution by the famous Dutch text writer Ivo de Wijs about the making of the successful Nijntje musicals. Other contributions discuss the influence of others on Dick Bruna's work and the man himself, in the light of biographical details. Of course, his qualities as a graphic designer for the publishing house Uitgeverij Bruna and later for his own studio are also described. F

Reviews - What do customers think about Dick Bruna?

The Brains and Heart Behind Miffy  Jul 12, 2008
For anyone who grew up in Europe over the last six decades (and in more recent years millions of newer fans in North America and Asia-Pacific), here's the definitive book on the deceptively simple art, menagerie of characters and captivating stories created by the inimitable talents of Dick Bruna. As a child, I couldn't imagine a day (let alone a bedtime) going by without following the tales of Snuffy, Miffy, Poppy, Boris and other unnamed but equally glorious characters that came from this very sweet, perceptive man's mind, talents and heart. All of these qualities are in abundant evidence here, for this is as much a fine art book and biography as it is a love story. Bruna amply acknowledges here how much he (and we, by extension, among his legions of fans) has benefited from the keen eye, advice, encouragement and adoration of his wife, Irene. This book is one of those gifts that keeps on giving!
If this book was food it would be chocolate!  Dec 12, 2007
Wonderful book documenting the life of Dick Bruna and showing many examples of his work, not just Miffy. It's just BEAUTIFUL!
