Rien Poortvliet is best known for the book ‘Gnomes,’ written by Wil Huygen, but there is far more to the work of Rien Poortvliet In fact, there are over 250 books featuring artwork by Rien Poortvliet in some capacity, not to mention all of the calendars, tins, figures, plates, cups, postcards and many more items!
So here it is, the Rien Poortvliet Bibliography. The bibliography is organized in a way that has all of the books first, followed by the various other items to be found.
The books themselves are also organised specifically. Namely, all of the Kabouter/Gnome books are separated and placed first, followed by the Non-Gnome related books. Each entry is set out thus-
Publisher ♦ ISBN ♦ Year
We have also organised the books so that if a Dutch book is subsequently published in English, that English version will immediately follow the original Dutch version, and will be coloured like this.
This bibliography is most definitely a work in progress. There will invariably be the odd book or item missing, and there are also pieces of information missing within existing entries, be they a publisher name, a year published, etc. The books we have listed are all the first editions of the title.
