Fiep Westendorp (17 December 1916 – 3 February 2004) was a Dutch illustrator who became especially popular due to her long-term collaboration with writer Annie M.G. Schmidt. Fiep did a large number of illustrations for several books and magazines, and at least three generations of Dutch people have grown up with her illustrations.
The drawings she made for ‘Jip en Janneke’, a series of stories for a Dutch newspaper, were later published as a childrens’ book that is still very popular today.
In 1971, Fiep Westendorp and Annie M.G. Schmidt published the book ‘Pluk van de Petteflet’ about a little boy called Pluk who had all sorts of adventures with his red breakdown lorry (English translation available as ‘Tow-truck Pluck’).Since the regular Dutch awards for illustrations always eluded her, she was given a unique award for her entire oeuvre in 1997.
