Reisgenoten, an artist book (Travel companions)

On the journey of life sometimes books make the best companions. With Reisgenoten Anne Verhoijsen pays tribute to the voices that comforted her in her childhood and encouraged her all through her youth. The intimate space between the reader and the page allows infinite worlds and selves to unfold. Leo Vroman wrote a poem in Dutch and in English, special for Reisgenoten. Reisgenoten is a handmade book and will be released in a limited edition of 150. It is already in the collection of the Meermanno Museum, the Caldic collection and De Nederlandsche Bank.

Reisgenoten has recently been acquired by MoMA New York and the NY Public Liberary.

KLEINE EEUWIGHEID

Tussen mijn eind en mijn begin

daar ligt mijn kleine eeuwigheid.

Daar leef ik lekker binnenin.

Daar buiten bestaat geen tijd.

A SMALL ETERNITY

 

Between my ending and my birth

there lives a small eternity

that hugs me and that cuddles me.

No time exists elsewhere on earth.
