This is actually an issue of a very sporadically appearing magazine. Nevertheless, it is also a wonderful book in which subtle means such as the employment of only two colours of print, black and red, evoke an atmosphere that ties in perfectly with the era in which Albert Lamorisse’s famous film Le Ballon Rouge was made.

It is a book in which form and content coincide – no great surprise, given that content and form come from the same person. Like some meticulous detective, with a patent passion for the subject Piet Schreuders takes us back in time, somehow contriving to ensure that the vast volume of diverse material, which is handled in a variety of ways, nevertheless coalesces into a convincing whole.

It was conspicuous that there was something of a correlation with panel members’ ages: the admiration for this book evinced by the older members was somewhat incomprehensible to the youngest.
