W.F. Hermans was not only a novelist and sharp polemicist, but also a photographer, as is well known to most readers of Hermans' work. Less known is that Hermans was also an illustrator and collage maker. All his life, Hermans made collages, albeit sporadically. The collages by Hermans not only reflect the author's idiosyncratic hand, but also his broader vision on authorship and his view of the world. In both expressions of his creative mind, the written and the visual work, Hermans' fascination for the surreal and the so-called ‘unknowable’ is found. Word and image seem sprout from the same root. On 24 August 1946 Hermans published his first collage in the magazine De Baanbreker. In 1953 he showed his collages again, this time in the Amsterdam gallery Le Canard, and along with other surrealists such as Emiel van Moerkerken, Louis Lehmann, Ad Pieters and Maurits Dekker. Then, in 1963, collages appeared in the first edition of ‘Mandarijnen op zwavelzuur’; subscribers to the self-published edition receive a collage from the author. (M. Folkertsma, Utrecht University Repository). Cf. Freddy de Vree: Het hoedenparadijs. Walburg Pers, 1991.
