W.F. Hermans in Vorm

Commercial, proprietary and bibliophile editions, starting with the earliest editions from the 1940s and ending with the Complete. In addition to known and hitherto unknown letters, sketches and rejected designs. This can all be seen in this exhibition on the design of the books by Willem Frederik Hermans. Correspondence with his publishers shows that Hermans is intensively involved in the design of his books. Choices that he does not like can count on unvarnished criticism.
