DIES Yrrah - Harry Lammertink

Harry Lammertink, better known as YRRAH was a Dutch cartoonist (1932-1996). A few weeks ago, his second cartoon book  'DIES Yrrah' came into my possession. I only paid 1,99 euro for this great 'vintage' cartoon book.  It's published in 1959 (De Arbeiderspers, Amsterdam).

After more than half a century, the cartoons are not outdated and are still witty. In a next post I'll present another book and I'll show some of his cartoons draw from the frog perspective, typical for his drawing style.
