Leap of faith: an interview with Max Velthuijs

De Rijke, Victoria ORCID logoORCID: https://orcid.org/0000-0003-0804-5687 and Hollands, Howard (2006) Leap of faith: an interview with Max Velthuijs. Children's literature in education, 37 (2) . pp. 185-197. ISSN 1573-1693 [Article] (doi:10.1007/s10583-006-9005-5)


The now late great Max Velthuijs was filmed in April 2004 discussing his work with Victoria de Rijke and Howard Hollands, who began the interview expecting Max to be working under certain artistic and cultural influences, none of which seemed to be the case! Max describes what brought him home to Andersen Press, the freedom of children's picturebooks and his particular way of working, the irony of the white canvas, his attachment to certain symbolic motifs such as apples and blackbirds, and his affinity with the creatures that make up the universally popular and internationally acclaimed Frog series.
