A special look into the world of Ramses Shaffy (1933-2009), Holland's most legendary chansonnier, composer, songwriter and actor, who has left us classics such as 'Sammy', ‘We zullen doorgaan’, ‘Laat me’, ‘Zing, vecht, huil, bid, lach, werk en bewonder’ en ‘Shaffy cantate’.

In cooperation with Allard Pierson and Ramses' friends and family, we have obtained exclusive access to Ramses Shaffy's archive. Anyone wanting to discover Ramses Shaffy can spend hours browsing through the thousands of images displayed in this collector's edition. Handwritten letters, song lyrics, drawings, record sleeves, his collection, household effects and so on. An example of one of the peculiar discoveries was a large envelope on which was written: ‘Rechthouden volle asbak’ (Keep straight full ashtray). While clearing out his house, the ashtray including its contents was shoved into the envelope and stored in the archive.

Measuring 32 x 46 x 10 cm, this edition is a real collector's item. A lenticular print on the cover shows both the young Ramses and Ramses in the autumn of his life. Both images are etched in the memory of every Ramses fan. The book block comes in a luxury protective cover, which is partly hand-painted by renowned designer Bob van Dijk (also known for the 'nijntje xxl miffy' and 'Ik aksepteer u zoals ik ben - Herman Brood' editions). In addition, this collector's edition includes a specially compiled double-album containing more than twenty Ramses Shaffy hits.
