One of Holland’s greatest illustrators. Fiep’s individual and often humorous drawings complement Annie M.F. Schmidt’s writing perfectly. Their timeless collaboration lasted more than forty years. Fiep came up with a very distinctive illustrative style (silhouettes) for Netherland’s most popular pre-schoolers: Yip and Yannika.
