Publisher's imprint
The postcard with the salutation ‘Lieve Gerrit & Charles’ was discovered by accident on 3 July 2008 in one of the trays of D.A.S. Sterk, a dealer in postcards, sugar bags and stamps, at the book market on the Korte Voorhout in The Hague. The brand-new owner of this gem immediately recognised the importance of the text for research into the place and function of the concept of ‘universe’ in Reve's oeuvre. As a result, he approached the owner of the Toeterpers with the request to put the whole thing in bibliophile, velvet pants. This went much too far for her; a cover of Shanti Tripti was more than enough. The beautiful Munken paper (150 g/m², 1.5 antique book paper), the type use (Bembo Monotype no. 270), the soft sparkling gold, and the modest edition of 36 copies, lend style to this edition.
