Friso Henstra was a sculptor and book illustrator from the Netherlands. Born in Amsterdam in 1928, he was educated at Rijksacademie voor Beeldende Kunsten. After a fifteen-year career in sculpting, he began to develop as an illustrator and comic artist. His first work in this line was for such magazines as Madriil, Olidin and Kris-Kras. In 1968 Henstra began teaching at the Art Academy in Arnhem, where he worked for sixteen years. In that same year he illustrated De Koningskruistocht, the Dutch translation of American author Jay Williams' Tomorrow's Fire, and was invited to illustrate some of Wiliams' original American editions. His work on Williams' The Practical Princess was awarded the BIB (Biennale of Illustration Bratislava) 1969 Golden Apple. Many award-winning titles followed. Henstra began writing stories of his own in 1978, with Wait and See. He was awarded the prestigious Gouden Penseel award in 1992, for his work on Sylvia Hofsepian's Waarom Niet. Henstra died in 2013.
