With the adventures of Miffy, a cute little female rabbit, Dick Bruna won the hearts of children from all over the world. More than 85 million copies have been sold so far and the stories have been translated into 50 different languages.

Dick Bruna started his career designing book covers. He made over 2000 of them. But his greatest passion is making children’s books. Although he’s in his eighties now, Dick Bruna still works 7 days a week. Each picture is created using a paintbrush. He works intensively on every detail.

The pure and simple world that Bruna creates with his minimal use of colours and thick black lines makes his work highly distinct. Not surprisingly Bruna is inspired by famous modernist artists like Mondrian, Rietveld and especially Henri Matisse.
