Catalogue Note

This image is the fourth design Werkman has made as part of the assignment to create a premium edition for the Nederlandsch Verbond voor Boekenvrienden.
Mr Kist, chairman of the Boekenvrienden, wrote to Werkman in a letter dated September 4, 1943: 'For most members, the blue bird in front of the tree would be preferable, in my opinion, because it might be more direct than the others.'
