Today I participated in the world’s first read-in, a (very quiet) flashmob of people who congregated in a public space to read together, organized by Flemish writer Kristien Hemmerechts. She is the so called Writer in Residence at Amsterdam’s VU university.

For this event I created a stamp inspired by old ex librises, which I put in the books of the participants after the read-in. The stamp depicts a griffin (which is the trademark of the VU) with book leaves for wings.

Read more on this project (dutch only) in Flemish magazine Knack here.

Oh yeah, I was reading Vadsige koningen by Hugo Raes.
