Welcome Welkom Wilkommen Bienvenue Bienvenida

This website is of interest for collectors of graphic design by Dick Bruna. Dick Bruna, well known for his Miffy children books, designed from 1957 till 1970 famous book covers in the "Black Bears" book series of publishing house Bruna & Son in Utrecht, the Netherlands.

In these book cover designs Dick Bruna experimented with collage and montage. He was influenced by Matisse, Leger and Mondrian in the development of his unique style. These clear designed covers became trade-marks of the publishing company; they were so iconical that they needed no words to convey messages intended for publicity. The book covers are considered a landmark in international graphic design.
