Dutch Picture Books

There’s now an online collection of children’s picture books in Dutch, ranging from the years between 1810 to 1950. There are 650 books in the collection, which has been set up by the Koninklijke Bibliotheek , the Openbare Bibliotheek Amsterdam , Bibliotheek Rotterdam , and the Stadsarchief en Athenaeumbibliotheek Deventer.  A fascinating slice of social history.

About Geoff Coupe

I'm a British citizen, although I have lived and worked in the Netherlands since 1983. I came here on a three year assignment, but fell in love with the country, and one Dutchman in particular, and so have stayed here ever since. On the 13th December 2006 I also became a Dutch citizen.
