Since the 1950s, KLM Royal Dutch Airlines has presented Delft Blue miniature houses to its Business Class passengers. The iconic miniatures are known the world over and represent monuments in Amsterdam, and other major cities across the Netherlands. 

The book 'Little Kingdom by the Sea, a celebration of Dutch cultural heritage and architecture' by Dutch author Mark Zegeling offers you an exclusive peek behind the facades of the KLM Collection and reveals amazing stories about the inhabitants of these historic houses. Among them are pioneers, innovative entrepreneurs, old Dutch masters and other remarkable characters who left their mark on Dutch history, culture and architecture.

Extensive research, including interviews with architectural historians and the current residents of the historic buildings, have yielded a wealth of information, engaging anecdotes and unique and moving stories.

大家好,我是马克•策格林。在接下来的行程里,我将带您领略荷兰的历史。这些故事与蓝陶制作的荷航房屋模型,密切相关。

20世纪50年代,荷兰皇家航空公司制作了一系列蓝陶房屋模型,并把它们作为礼物送给商务舱乘客。这些具有历史意义的房屋和国家遗迹,在全球人们的心目中,已经成为荷兰的名片。我撰写的《荷兰王国》这本书,专门叙述了这些房屋曾经主人的故事。他们是勇于开拓的先辈、是具有探险精神的冒险家,是拥有辉煌人生的人物,他们在荷兰历史上留下了浓墨重彩的一笔。

我对这些人物进行了深入的研究,包括采访了相关建筑历史学家和如今生活在其中的居民,我获得了大量的全新资料、轶闻趣事和鲜活故事。
