Remarkable Objects from the Collection of the KB
The KB tries to preserve everything that has been written in or about the Netherlands, but our collection also includes some fairly remarkable objects. The Remarkable Objects series highlights a few of these unexpected gems.
What do Jan van Speijk’s jacket, the KB’s oldest book, ‘German war propaganda and an invisible book have in common? They are all stored in our repository. In the Remarkable objects series, our collection specialists tell you why these objects are so special.
We will be publishing a new part of this 5-part series every week, so keep an eye on this page!
