‘The Dark Side of Dick Bruna’ focuses on the Dutch Miffy creator’s alternative visual language. Between 1955 and 1970 he designed more than 2,000 covers for crime stories and other thrillers in the Zwarte Beertjes series of paperbacks published by A.W. Bruna & Zoon. The more than 350 book covers, sketches, posters and collages in the exhibition reveal Dick Bruna’s craftsmanship and eye for narrative. His designs made a major contribution to the distinctiveness of the series.
