The dogs of Rembrandt van Rijn

The Collier van hondjes [Collar of dogs] is a story-telling concept that encompasses the large number of Rembrandt’s dogs in a gem of a miniature publication.

The book collier is bound with a variation of a cross-stitch known in Dutch as the ‘brocheersteek.’ The gilt-edged pages are sized according to the golden ratio. The content of the book encompasses a selection of etchings, drawings and paintings of Rembrandt van Rijn. The images are all available in online collections from several musea worldwide. Of every dog you can find the entire original work online.
