Best Book Designs Netherlands And Flanders 2015

$36.50

The annual catalog of the Best Dutch Book Designs transformed in 2015 to accommodate a selection of books from both the Netherlands and Flanders. With the two regions acting together as guest country at the 2016 Frankfurt Book Fair, it was a natural decision to mount a joint selection, the result of which is 33 Dutch and 17 Flemish Best Designed Books. An eye for innovation and inventive image-text symbiosis was given priority, as was the “necessity” of a project, according to Dirk Leyman, author of the judges’ report. Includes a book manifesto by Irma Boom.

The production details of each selected title are provided, accompanied by a narrative description of the work that highlights the specific design and production aspects which capture the jury's attention and led to its inclusion.
