This lot concerns the coloured cover of the story "Op Apenjacht" published in 1963 in "Ons Kerkklokje", which was part of Kerkelijk Leven.
Jan Waterschoot (1892-1968) illustrated this story under the pseudonym Jif.
The edges of the original cover sometimes show small tears, but outside the illustration.
He was a very talented etcher, painter and artist.
Considering his many qualities, he was initially mainly engaged in etching and watercolours, so his first comic first appeared only in 1937 (in Zonneland and Petits Belges).
His craftsmanship as a comic artist mainly shone in comics such as Jan Zonder Vrees, Willem van Saeftinge, Pius XII, Rubens, De Drie Musketiers, etc...
The plates offered here also exist in an album version from 2011 released by publishing house Bonte in an edition of 350 copies. This lot comes with a printout of the cover, but the album is NOT part of this lot!
