De Messias_Book cover.jpg
In September 2015 a Dutch novel will appear in which dendrochronology plays a key role. De Messias ('The Messiah') tells the story of Emma Faber, a dendroclimatologist who becomes involved in the research of stringed instruments. Her adventures in a realm dominated by greed and vanity are intertwined with the history of Antonio Stradivari and his legacy, taking us from 17th-century Italy through Napoleonic France to post-war Berlin.
