The Unique Art Edition is a co-created book, between you and Marcel Wanders. The Unique Art Edition will feature the same paintings as the Limited Edition, and allows for a great amount of customisation and personal touches. The printing will be of the highest standard possible and very close to the real-life experience in the Gallery of Honour in the Rijksmuseum. All the calligraphy will be directly written into the book to make it a unique work of art.

The sequence of the paintings will be different to the Limited Edition to enhance the Unique experience and never before seen details of the paintings will be emphasised. Two paintings have a spread of 145 by 70 cm instead of 100 by 70 cm, in order for you to experience an even larger part of these masterpieces. Modern works of participating artists will be added to the book too. Some will be painted direcly into the book, others will be glued in, to give you an even more Unique experience. The unique aspects of the book are of course the personalised touches. The quotes will be calligraphed in your language of choice. Every single page in the Unique Art Edition will indeed be unique.

Each step of creating the Unique Art Edition will be discussed at length with you.
