Bruna SF

Zwarte Beertjes abstract —

Dick Bruna designed over 2000 covers for the Zwarte Beertjes series, pocket books that brought famous international detective series to a dutch public. Well known are the covers he did for the Saint and James Bond series or Maigret and other Simenon books. The color schemes and simple iconography Bruna used set a style that made the Beertjes famous. Slightly different and more abstract are these covers for some Science Fiction titles.
