Christian Courier Canada 1 augustus 2002 Harry der Nederlanden Editor Holland and the Hollanders: Nature and Nostalgia Dirk M. de Boer Published by: Perfect Picture, Nederland, 192 pp. This is one of the most exquisite coffee-table books on The Netherlands I ve seen. The photography is top-notch and the colors of the illustrations better than in most art books. There are huge two-page spreads of nature scenes as well as numerous smaller shots, amounting to hundreds of pictures. It s a feast for the eyes. De Boer gives us a wonderful appreciation of the Dutch landscape as well as of the people and what they have built on it; he clearly is attuned to the natural beauties of his native country. This is not just a picture book, however; there s an amazing wealth of information to deepen your grasp of the country s culture. Although born there, I ve never felt a twinge of nostalgia for Holland, but after savoring the pictures in this excellent book, I m tempted to buy a plane ticket. The book is expensive, but it s cheaper than a ticket. A gift which will keep grandma and grandpa or even the grandchildren turning pages all evening. --Christian Courier Canada
The Windmill Herald Dec 23, 2002. Immensely enjoyable pictorial book Holland and the Hollanders' examines Dutch nature and traditions A compact, natural and sometimes man-made accumulation of amazing variety. The North Sea coastal country of 16 million people can be traversed by car in a few hours. From east to west or north to south, Holland' offers a vast array of landscapes, towns and villages, nature, tourist attractions and yes, also its inhabitants. A new photo book compiled by Dirk M. de Boer captures that eclectic appeal of the Netherlands. Holland and the Hollanders' - with text in English - provides a view many visitors are unable to capture themselves, usually because of time restrictions. The camera travels through the entire country and brings a vista of the diversity the Netherlands has to offer - and is happy to show. En route are hundreds of sights, ranging from windswept dunes and frozen lakes to market fairs and flower pageants. In twelve text chapters - as many as there are provinces in the country - Holland and the Hollanders' touches on history, on the weather, on its role in fishing and shipping, on the multitude of castles, on authentic crafts and on... windmills. The Hollanders part of the equation emphasizes on traditional costumes, on cheese making, on agriculture, on the tulip, on greenhouse operations and on skating. --The Windmill Herald
