Welcome Dick Bruna (1927-2017), well known creator of Miffy, designed early in his career book covers for Bruna & Son in Utrecht, the Netherlands. He experimented with collage, and was influenced by Matisse, Leger and 'De Stijl' in his development. The covers became iconical trade-marks and a landmark in international graphic design. Dick Bruna also designed publicity posters for the books, created charity posters and issued hand-signed art prints in limited editions.

On this website, you will find a selection of these vintage book covers in the the paperback series 'Zwarte Beertjes' (Black Bears). You can order the items shown. Black Bear posters are very scarce and this effects prices. This is also the case with limited editions and hand signed prints.
