Dick Bruna is the genius behind 'Miffy', the enigmatic Dutch bunny from my childhood. And while this is a legacy to be more that proud of it would be a crime if we were to forget the body of work Bruna has produced, which includes over 2000 book covers.
“I would love to be able to draw like a child, so spontaneous, so open-minded on those big sheets. As an adult you start to draw and then hope that you make something good, something beautiful. A child is not like that, they start and see what happens... I draw things you will see close to home, things that I also like. Maybe I still think a bit like a child, I have a childish mind, I think. There are a lot of things I don’t understand.”
