Publishing firms are invited to take a ook at two finished manuscripts.
Another manuscript offered here is about Vermeer & Delft
A while ago The second manuscript offered here is about Mozart's travels. I wrote Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, een leven (a life). At present this title only exists in the shape of a Dutch language manuscript form. This book was written in the same richly illustrated history & historical cartography format as the book on Vincent van Gogh which has been published in Dutch and English.
For this Mozart manuscript, research trips for this were made to Vienna (Austrian State Library ; Albertina; Historic Museum) and Salzburg (Salzburg Historical Museum ; Mozarteum) All of these institutions provided research facilities for choosing a first class series of contemporary reproductions, including a stunning full wall-size reprint of the birds'eye view of 18th C Vienna; this map could be turned into a clickable map. This visually and thematically rich book or CD-rom is still waiting to be born.
