After a year-long time-out The Best of Dutch Book Design, an exhibition in the form of a traveling library, will be hitting the road again. From May 20 till June 20 the Dutch Embassy in Berlin will host the exhibition. Visitors will be able to leaf through the Best Dutch Book Designs of 2013, plus an additional set of some interesting Best Dutch Book Designs of the last few years.
Towards the end of last year The New Institute in Rotterdam, which at its inception took over the exhibition from Premsela – The Netherlands Institute for Design and Fashion, decided not to carry on with The Best of Dutch Book Design. In consultation with our partners, the Association of Dutch Designers (BNO), Dutch Culture and the Dutch Foundation for Literature we decided to go on booking the show ourselves. We are grateful to The New Institute for the care they took in the meantime.
