In the Begining

Dick Bruna was born in 1927 in the city of Utrecht. From a very young age he developed a passion for drawing even WWII didnt stop him & he continued to persue his interest. On leaving school he went to London to study in publishing which had been the family business since 1868. After returning to Holland he used his talent to enhance the family business by illustrating the covers to many paperback books published my the company. He was especially fond of using a collage technique which drew him much attention in the world of book art.

Miffy was born in 1955 while the family was on holiday. His son was playing with a fabric rabbit toy. He got to thinking about rabbits & drew an early version of her there & then. he gradually developed the character until she became the cheeky little Miffy we all know & love today. Dick always uses simple outlines & bold colours which always appeal to children which in my opinion is the secret to his sucess
