Lijntrekker, by Jan Bouman (1952)

Jan Bouman was the illustrator of the section 'Lijntrekker', that appeared in De Volkskrant during the 1950s. In this section, Boumaar searched the Netherlands for "curiosities and things worth knowing, monuments and fragments, celebrities and secrecies, events and depositions, headings and life bulletins," as the subtitle of the 1960 book collection states. Bouman's other serial about Dutch monuments, appeared in Cobouw between 1957 and 1971.

Together with Gerrit Stapel and Joop du Buy he participated in the creation of the antisemitic animation film 'Van den vos Reynaerde' during World War II.
