Multatuli published his Ideas in installments. Whenever he had completed an octavo page in manuscript (the equivalent of 16 pages in print), the publisher printed the text and published it as soon as there was enough copy to do so.
Multatuli used the cover of his installments to invite his readers to react to what he had written: this led to a kind of paper weblog. Every new Ideënbundel dealt with a different topic.
