Published in an edition of 40 copies, this special limited edition of The Course of History includes a numbered and signed photograph by Michiels, and is issued in a cloth slipcase. The image of the limited print is entitled "Verdun 1916, Le Mort Homme, 2001". As Sonja Fessel writes in her text "Michiels's photographs are striking for their harmonious composition and aesthetic appearance. In Verdun 1916, Le Mort Homme (2001), for instance, one sees a wide, slightly hilly meadow with high grass beneath a featureless sky. The horizon line lies almost exactly in the middle of the photograph, dividing it into balanced halves.
