- In Short
Noor van der Brugge
a great love for and strong believe in books
In the history of mankind, books have often worked as a source of transformation.
A book can be a capsule holding knowledge, beauty and wisdom. An antidote to dictatorship, racism of just plain stupidity.
In dark times, books have sometimes been smuggled, hidden, learned by heart, sewn in clothing sentence by sentence, or in hundreds of letters, to spread liberating ideas. Often, people risked their lives doing so.
Noor van der Brugge has a great love for books and believes in their strength. She believes that in these troubling times art and knowledge will be the only possible remedy. She draws swimmers in dark waters who achieve the impossible; transporting books across the water to safeguard goodness, beauty and truth.
