In 2008 and 2009, Stef Verstraaten photographed hundreds of reenactors, who, as part of the yearly Gebroeders van Limburg festival in Nijmegen, brought the late Medieval period to life. Working in a specially built mobile photo studio, he recorded the festival's participants in a very 21st century fashion: one by one, they each posed for his camera, bringing their animals and equipment with them. The results are amazing. The reenactors turned the studio into a time machine. The talent and efforts of Stef Verstraaten did the rest. Rich man - Poor man takes readers back to the 15th century, letting them meet some of the characters from this extreme period. This book provides not only a glimpse of our European ancestors, but also serves as a tribute to the numerous modern people who are so committed to experiencing and presenting this history. In addition to the spectacular photography, the book also includes an essay about Medieval reenactment and a short description of each image.

The books arrived quickly and in good shape. They are a great source of inspiration for a re-enactor. Well worth every penny! Thank you! Review by Randall (Posted on 3/17/2014)

This is a beautiful production and probably the ultimate coffee table book( a large coffee table, the book is massive!). The only issue I have is the quality of the metalwork, which is a little amateurish compared to the costuming. Review by wormwood (Posted on 10/15/2013)

The scale and quality of the images in this book is really quite breathtaking. The reader is drawn in and gets a great sense of the charm, humour and menace of the period.
The costumes are authentic and this, combined with the beautiful photography and presentation, make Edelman-Bedelman a unique and highly recommended book.

What a fascinating book. It's large size and format gives the photographs of the re-enactors a grand presentation. I was particularly pleased with the large cross-section of medieval society presented by the producers. Everything from peasants to merchants to soldiers and knights--an entirely rich European strata of people. I loved this book for it's unique format and quality. My only issue with the format was I would have preferred a little more descriptive material relating to each person(s) in the photographs. There was a wealth of material that could have been presented for the re-enactors and that opportunity was missed. Review by Anthony Steele (Posted on 8/2/2013)
