Willum Wel Won

In Amsterdam  yesterday – the day our new king was installed – to test the republican sentiment. I found that republicans were few and far between. Proof of this sad state of affairs: in three hours I sold all of the  ‘Ik willum wel’  buttons, and under half of the ‘Ik willum niet’ ones. ‘Ik willum wel’ meaning ‘yes, I do want Willem’ and ‘Ik willum niet’ saying ‘no, I don’t want Willem’.  Had a great afternoon, though,  chatting with passers-by and friends, photographing the Willum-Wel’s and Willum-Niet’s buyers.
