    Ed van der Elsken's 'Sweet Life' published in 1966 is considered one of the key works of Dutch photobook history. In 1960, armed with two magazine commissions and a stipend from Dutch television, Ed van der Elsken and his wife Gerda set off on a fouteen month journey around the world. Six years after their return, he published his travelogue 'Sweet Life' which exhibited a panoply of layout effects - double-page bleeds, crops, printed in deep gravure, and different cover designs for each of the six countries in which it was published. Books on Books #13 presents a study of this classic book with a contemporary essay by Frits Gierstberg.
