A.F.Th. v/d Heijden, B. Dumon Tak, Hans v.d. Waarsenburg, Kreek D. Ouwens, L.H. Wiener, Sybren Polet - Brieven aan Gert B. - 2021

Gert Boonekamp is a literature lover and collector. Because he had to live in a smaller house, he was forced to get rid of a large part of his collection. He intended the writers' letters for the Literature Museum. In order not to let this drastic event pass unnoticed, six letters addressed to him have now been collected in a bibliophile edition. The format of the letters varies. The texts were set by hand from the Spectrum for the edition 'Letters to Gert B.' and, in an edition of about 120 copies, printed under the Korenmaat.
In a tasteful black box you will find letters from Kreek Daey Ouwens (about her collection Echo Echo), Bibi Dumon Tak (about the cow she saved her life), A.F.Th. van der Heijden (about Tonio), Sybren Polet (about his autobiography, Hans van de Waarsenburg (about his temporarily dead poetry) and L.H. Wiener (about Nestor, to which added the speech he gave at the presentation of the book). The letter from A.F.Th. is presented as a booklet (with green cover) and is bound in yarn.
