Anders nog iets?

The panel came across many books on the subject of cities, whether it was the future of the city, new forms of urban living and ‘citizenship’, or looking at the historical significance of cities and their monumental values. Anders nog iets? (the title translates as ‘Anything else?’) falls into both these categories: it’s a monument to the traditional shopkeeper, the trade that threatens to be swallowed up by the Internet and chain stores but which at the same time is nourished by a new generation of neighbourhood entrepreneurs: artisanal bakers, a games workshop, hipster bicycle builders. The book is a festive parade of the changing retail landscape in Rotterdam, and its colourful design gives effective expression to the theme. The cover material and printing are references to traditional packaging, the chapter numbers are in the form of take-a-number tickets, and there’s some appropriate dayglow orange: in short, a happy ode to the small city entrepreneur.
