Thalys versus La Type 12

In 2021 François Schuiten made a drawing for the 25th anniversary of Thalys. After finishing the drawing, Schuiten scratched away the Thalys from the original drawing and draw La Douce instead. This is possible due to the very thick paper Schuiten uses for his images. The original image is now irreversible changed.
