The idea of ‘painting the old poems in new colours’ is the brain-child of the artist Rūta Briede who thought of it while reading to her little daughter her own favourite childhood poem books. While the size of the bickie-buck books is small, the amount of work done by each of the artists is enormous. In the series, poems once much loved by parents or grandparents as children are re-discovered by an artist and presented to the children of today in a completely new look. The books are numbered for more convenient collecting in your home library:


Nr.55. Rainis. The Riddle. Illustrated by Alise Mediņa;

Nr.56. Dzidra Rinkule-Zemzare. Let Us Go!. Illustrated by Kristiāna Dimitere;

Nr.57. Viks. A Child's Talk. Illustrated by Leonards Laganovskis; 

Nr.58. Leons Briedis. The White Doggie. Illustrated by Anta Pence; 

Nr.59. Uldis Auseklis. Autumn Wind Plays Hide-and-Seek. Illustrated by Indra Sproģe; 

Nr.60. Aivars Neibarts. The Zoo. Illustrated by Lāsma Pujāte.


The book’s logo features the time when each poem was written: pre-1940; between 1940 and 1990; after 1990.
