The beautiful drawings of Rien Poortvliet are already a generation of children and parents in memory. After 40 years and translations in more than 20 countries, the GNOME is now working on a real revival! For example, a private tableware line has been launched at the Blokker, calendars, diaries postcards, puzzles and images have been put on the market and the Lustrum is celebrated with a theatrical performance. There will even be a sand sculpture feast this summer! At the basis of this revival are the beautifully illustrated books by Rien Poortvliet and Wil Huygen: Life and works of the gnome and the call of gnomes. These are now fully available again!
