Every country has its own heros; for a small group of Dutch people Hans Koetsier is renowned for his enigmatic advertisements weekly placed in a Dutch newspaper and his prints with texts that were more associated with advertising agencies than with high art.

In this booklet H.J.A. Hofland contemplates in his essay ‘Encyclopedia of roundness’ on the face of each man and the face of time, on a straight line that is supposed to be right and a bowed line that is supposed to be wrong. With 35 short statements he paraphrases the works of the artist who is also known for organic kidney shaped hard-edge images.
