The Designer - Dick Bruna
Born in Utrecht in 1927, he is one of the most famous illustrators
in the Netherlands. Bruna earned much of his international acclaim
with his creation 'Miffy', the stylised rabbit who has charmed
generations of toddlers with her everyday adventures.
Dick Bruna's picture books have been translated into more than
40 languages. His first book The Apple appeared in 1953 and his
one hundredth Miffy, the Ghost was published this year.
But Dick Bruna's work extends beyond children's books. He began
his career in the graphics industry as a designer of book covers
for the family publishing business A.W. Bruna & Zoon. His designs
for the Zwarte Beertjes series, Havank, Maigret and The Saint are
wellknown. The posters he designed for the Zwarte Beertjes paperbacks
also enjoy considerable renown.
Dick Bruna has also used his work to serve humanitarian organisations
such as UNICEF, Terre des Hommes and the Red Cross. The claim that
Bruna's work qualifies as 'art' is justified by the permanent exhibition
dedicated to him, which opened at the Centraal Museum in Utrecht
