From the lay-out for this article, you could jump to the conclusion that the production of these CDs was a joint venture of NAAM and some other party. It's not: Meant is that our "cultural" or "national" heritage is such a joint venture.
The project was our private enterprise, as explained elsewhere. Then AAINA, now NAAM, in the person of Jay Haviser, did help out with the original Curaçao maps. As is obvious from the CD box cover, these really were in a pretty sorry condition and it was high time they were reproduced and conserved; something nobody had considered till then. Later on, Eddie Baetens and Ieteke Witteveen, who now is with NAAM, pushed for a welcome subsidy from the now defunct OKSNA. We got it after the work for CD-1 had been done, which is pretty unique (but we didn't tell them). Particularly, finding the Willemstad maps gave a lot of trouble—so much that OKSNA had already agreed we had fulfilled our promises without including them; it was only later that we found them at Utrecht University.
The commercial releases in larger impressions, again, were undertaken at entirely our own risk.
