    Piep de Muis (Peep, the mouse) is a publication in the series “Het Bonte Boekenhuis”. This booklet was heavily used, and inside there is no page to be found that was not scribbled on in spite of the designated “ruimte om te tekenen” (space for drawing) at the end of the booklet.

    The story is typeset with Italian Old Style. The publication is undated, but the use of Quick and Welt-Antiqua (sold in the Netherlands by the Amsterdam Type Foundry as Atlas) with its wide-legged capital M means it was probably published after 1933.
