C: Jan Ott, welcome back to Stavoren. Wonderful to see you again. Two and a half years ago, you educated me about the Oera Linda Book and I was fascinated. You spoke at our dinner. We were in Leeuwarden. I said: "We have to do an interview." One thing led to another, and you said: "I'm about to publish a new English edition", and you did. We started to prepare an interview. Then you published a second English edition in paperback. For the people watching, what is the Oera Linda Book?
J: It's a manuscript – a handwritten text – that became known in the 1870's. We are in Friesland here, one of the Dutch provinces. In the Frisian archives there is this manuscript. Even before the first translation was published in the newspapers and magazines there was already consensus that it was fake and that anyone who'd take it seriously was a fool.

Production of this edition and the previous (full size) one have been nerve-racking. This also applies to part of the distribution process of the previous edition (this one will probably be easier, as less will go abroad and we have learned from some mistakes). It was an interesting learning experience thus far, but I do hope to not have to do this again under these circumstances. Mostly because it hinders my researching, translating, etc.
