Read full description of the books Eline Vere:I read the version put out by Archipelago Books. It was a lovely book to hold. I really enjoyed its comfortable heft, the binding, the font, the overall design and texture of the cover. It may have been about the stodgier side of the Hague in the 19th century, but the book itself was a sensual delight. Every time I turned a page, I enjoyed touching the paper it was printed on. This was very fitting since there is a lot of material culture in it. There was a sameness to what people said; the details came out in how they related to each other's furniture.
This book had a pleasant fly-in-amber quality about life in The Hague for a certain class of people at a certain time, and like Andy Warhol's 'Empire' it develops it's own scale of action. Every night I climbed into this book and braced myself for the moment the lights would come on. They never did. I enjoyed it anyway.
