The everlasting charm of illustrator Dick Bruna’s Miffy

quote [ Creating these scenes for his family was also a heartwarming habit of Bruna’s it turns out, with Bruce explaining in the book how each morning Bruna would wake at 5.30 am, squeeze a glass of orange juice for Irene to have at breakfast and draw her something, either relating to her explanation of the day before, or something she had to look forward during the day ahead. He’d then head to the studio by bike for the day, six or seven days a week. ]

That's an even nicer story than one would assume.

As it happens there is a Miffy display on at the uni I work at. I have been meaning to drop in and marvel at Miffy's Simplicity for some time. You have now made up my mind to do that.
