Wander through the lives of three people by accessing the books they

left when they died. I have bought these collections in 2000 and after

cataloguing them took a sentence from every book.


In this way these people stay around and we can in our own private

surroundings visit the books they have spent time with. Doing so we form

an image of them, but how valid is this image?


For me the process of cataloguing and reading the books, giving

attention to just three individuals is a very important part of the

work.


Unfortunately, as most books are in Dutch, the site is mostly in dutch

too.
