Daniel de Bruin, well-known heraldic artist, whose work - especially his bookplates - was truly unique, has passed away.  He was only 60.

I had the chance to meet Daniel at the International Congress of Genealogical and Heraldic Sciences in Bruges, Belgium in 2004.  He was an enthusiastic artist whose work reflected his motto: Dare to be different.  I shall miss him.

More information about Daniel, along with a link to some tributes, can be found at his website, The Ermine, at
