in a time machine

Now that I’ve figured out how to best photograph my travel journals, it is time to do them all! Below the drawings and collages I made in the book ‘in a time machine through Japan’. The author documents a yearly pelgrimage that the Dutch used to make in the 17th and 18th century in Japan. Once a year the Dutch merchants were summoned to go to the high and mighty Shogun and pay homage. The trip took them from Decima – their toehold in Japan –  to Edo, the present Tokyo.
