    A book based on a bundle of letters written to the sailor Cornelis Schilpenoord, from 1934 to 1946. The book tells a story about this enigmatic person, telling about his love life, ties to religion and his family in Schiedam. Next to this, it gives an interesting view of the world before the introduction of fast communication and traveling.

    The book was printed using only black and an Iris-print of various shades of blue, making each copy different. Each book is wrapped in linen and hand-stamped with the title. Since this was such a Dutch project, we also created our own I-J ligature for the typeface used in the book, the Odile.

    Made in a printing run of 400.
