Sailing the North Sea
History on my doorstep: Federico Spinola's unsuccessful attempt to ram the blockade of Dutch ships at Sluis, 26 May 1603
From the backyard: a small stream called the 'Passageule' in wintertime
Sailing the Atlantic Ocean
1The first voyage went from Simons Town in South Africa across the South Atlantic Ocean to Fortaleza in Brazil. The second trip from Sint Maarten in the Caribbean to the Netherlands in Europe. sail.robertschilder.com
2A worldwide travelling exhibition with original art about WATER in the broadest sense with emphasis on art and the Atlantic Ocean.
3An very important part of the websites is the resources file. Numbers in the texts in the book, exhibition and in the websites link to resources with much more information.
'Sail' around the world in 80 pages
4A continuous book of 80 pages in a harmonica form (accordion book folding), the reverse printed with etchings, drawings and infographics. Book is handbound in a piece of original sail from sy-GEMINI.
Here are some examples of the art-works; you can follow progress of the exhibition on my Facebook page.
The exhibition does not show 'just' art photography. Some of the prints are made in layers or are combined in such a way that they become 3-dimensional and unica.
The book and promotion material have numbers next to the text and pictures. The numbers link directly to sections in the resources file. This file gives you much more info also about copyrightholders and related content.
Scheduled first half of 2017, you can preorder your copy of the book at the special discount price of € 15.00 (excl. postage). Read more or
