Boissevain Books was established by the Estate of Hilda van Stockum (1908-2006), an internationally noted author and illustrator of more than thirty books for children and young adults. Hilda van Stockum was also a noted artist. Her paintings are included in the National Gallery of Ireland and other major collections around the world.
In addition to republishing the author’s previously out-of-print titles, Boissevain Books has recently launched a series of memoirs and historical fiction written by and/or about members of the van Stockum family.
Mission: Our mission is to introduce Hilda van Stockum’s timeless stories, illustrations and paintings to new generations of children, teens and adults, and to publish new works by and about members of the van Stockum family.
