“All I’ve done is try to make people a little happier, be it with a poster at the station, a book cover or a Miffy book used to be.” – Dick Bruna.

Using unique material from Bruna’s private archive, it sheds new light on a life devoted to art, from his acclaimed poster and book cover designs to his beloved creation Miffy. What is it that makes his work so powerful and loved? The authors of this book summarize it as follows: “And with that we get to the heart of the matter: Matisse’s gong, Cassandre’s punch and Bruna’s humanity.”
