Artist Jan Fabre’s sculpture The man giving a light can be seen in the garden of the Guido Gezelle museum. This work of art can be interpreted as the artist passing on the light of poetry to others, as Guido Gezelle used to do with his poetical works.
In this beautiful bibliophile work with a cover design by Alex Barbaix, printed at Pastei Press in Amsterdam, we get one poem by Guido Gezelle (The Raven) and one poem by Jacques Hamelink (The Dead Seagull). The work is considered to be one of the highlights in recent Dutch bibliophile printing history.
