Over 35 years ago Gnomes was published and the world first became enchanted with the simple, diligent, and magical ways of these special creatures. The title went on to become a New York Times bestseller and has sold over a million copies. Based on Rien Poortvliet and Wil Huygen's scientific observation of the local gnome population in Holland, Gnomes covers all areas of gnome culture: architecture, education, courtship, medicine, industry, and relationships with other mythical creatures. This revised collector's edition of Gnomes features a new introduction, 8-removable prints in a back cover pocket, and an all-new signature of never-before-published gnome sketches by artist Rien Poortvliet.
Rien Poortvliet (1932-1995) was one of the most popular Dutch artists, regarded by colleagues as the Bach of wildlife painters. He illustrated more than twenty books before his death in 1995. The Rien Poortvliet Museum in Middelharnis, Holland, opened in 1992 and is dedicated to his works. Wil Huygen (1923-2009) was born in Amersfoort, Holland. He was a physician and children's author
