I went to the 'Letterenhuis' this week, it is some
kind of museum for the Flemish literature, founded
in 1933. I was there to see the exhibition of
Gert Dooreman, a Belgian graphic designer.
Most of the illustrations and books were
presented in glass displays, so ...
... i focussed my mind on something else :)
A turtle with eyes that blue, weird, isn't it?
... I had the opportuniy to have a seat and
take a look at some books, designed by Dooreman.
Didn't knew he styled 'Soepkinders',written
and illustrated by Gerda Dendooven, a Belgian
book illustrator and artist who I admire a lot.
She basically works with cut outs in bright, un-
patterned shapes, i really love her style.
The story's about two little sisters in search
for a new mother after she disappeared one day
together with their house. On their quest, the sisters
will bump into some very malafide creatures,
but in the end, they will find what they were looking
The story starts like this:
'This is a story about
being happy and soup
and it all started very long time ago
on a sunday afternoon'
Nice, isn't it!
Sweet dreams :-)
