Iconic poster for the Zwarte Beertjes (black bears) series

Poster designed and created by Dick Bruna for the famous Zwarte Beertjes paperback series.

Against a backdrop of black bears you can see a so-called self portrait of a black bear, created in the shape of a round frame.
The poster has nice colours and was created in the typical Bruna primary colours.
The lower-right corner of the frame has a signature in the print: "dick".

The condition is, considering the age, generally good. Signs of wear / age are unavoidable, including (tiny) pinholes on the corners, small glue residue bottom right of the centre. A small piece from the top left corner is missing.
The top and bottom edges were folded by approx. 2 cm, this doesn’t detract from the image of the black bear.
Should the poster be framed, these minor imperfections can be concealed using a modest mount.

Have a look at the photos for your own impression.

Dimensions: 63 x 45 cm.

Everything will be packaged carefully and shipped by registered mail within the Netherlands and beyond.

  • Lovely Gentleman, we had a slight issue with the item. He immediately and graciously not only made it right but went over & above to make it better.

    Wonderful to deal with, & I hope to do again.
