This edition features facsimiles (replica’s) of the four surviving sketchbooks, the loose sketchbook drawings and two cahiers containing cheerful drawings that Van Gogh made for Betsy Tersteeg, the young daughter of Hermanus Tersteeg, Van Gogh’s manager at the Goupil & Cie art dealership. In order to help ensure the best possible result, a total of 25 acclaimed Dutch companies and craftspeople were involved in the creation of the facsimiles.

Steven Hond (from publisher Uitgeverij Komma):
‘We sought to create the most true-to-life reproduction. Colour, materials, damage, stains, folds, creases or stretched elastic: every detail has been taken into consideration. Our aim was to get as close to the original as possible’.
