Johan Dijkstra cut out the initials and made the illustrations in wood for the book ''Trijntje Soldaats, Groninger Volksvertellingen'' from 1928. 600 copies were printed by the H.N. Werkmann printers from Groningen and the publisher was P. Noordhoff.
The woodcuts from this book connect expressionism with book illustrations from the middle ages
40 copies from this print run have been coloured in by Johan Dijkstra himself. This special copy has also been signed by Johan Dijkstra in the right bottom corner.
The picture measures 16.5 x 11.5 cm. The wooden frame with passepartout measures 33 x 23 cm. Everything is in mint condition
