Fiep Westendorp is especially famous for her illustrations on the writings of Annie M.G. Schmidt, the beloved Dutch children's book writer. Together, they created stories and images that will live on in the minds of children - and their parents. One of the most memorable text-comics they did together is 'Tante Patent', which appeared in several newspapers during the 1950s.

Fiep Westendorp died, after a short illness, on 3 February 2004, at the age of 87.

Since 1999, Lambiek presents the Comiclopedia as a free service to comic fans from all over the world. The database has expanded to over 12,000 biographies of international comic artists, and also has an extensive Dutch section about comics in the Netherlands.
For 15 years, the site was funded from the resources of our Amsterdam-based shop. However, the current economical circumstances make it difficult for us to maintain this service. At the moment the Comiclopedia's sole editor works for us free of charge, aided by a couple of (international) volunteers.
