Covers & pages


Cover & Pages – The Best Dutch Book Designs 2021 was designed by PutGootink (René Put en Brigitte Gootink). It is a visual report that places the 33 Best Dutch Book Designs of 2021 together in a once-only mutual relationship. PutGootink: ‘We show the cover of each book along with 5 pages selected on the basis of concrete, formal properties. In each case, we also combine these pages with a page from one of the other books. This allows the books to enter into a dialogue with one another.’

The catalogue itself is the result of the collaboration and dedication of a team, headed this year by PutGootink. A big thank you to printers drukkerij Tielen, NPN printers, Pantheon RaddraaierSSP, robstolk®, Wilco Art Books, Zwaan Lenoir and bookbinder Patist.

The paper was supplied by Igepa Nederland (also a sponsor), the foil by Saen Screen.

The catalogue is for sale (€35) at your favorite bookstore.

You can order it by its EAN code: 9789083173818.
