William Rutten has been taking pictures in the entertainment industry for more than twenty four years. Cors van den Berg finished his first novel in 2004. Everyone involved, from the graphic designer to the music publishing companies, artists and authors donated their time for free on this high-quality commemorative photo book, which has been produced in a limited edition of 1500 copies. For all the fans of Dutch music, it would make a great December gift idea.
