The very same week that the Best Dutch Book Designs 2011 exhibition opened at the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, another Best Dutch Book Designs show came out into the open: The Best of Dutch Book Design. This traveling exhibition, an initiative of Premsela – The Netherlands Institute for Design and Fashion, opens today at Yasar University in Izmir, Turkey. In November The Best of Dutch Book Design will move to the Istanbul Book Fair and in December to Dutch Design Workspace in Mumbai.
The Best of Dutch Book Design presents some forty Best Dutch Book Designs. The compact and easy-to-handle design comes from the Amsterdam-based Studio Laurens van Wieringen. The complete selection of 2011 is on show, to which a dozen Best Dutch Book Designs from the years 2006 to 2010 are being added.
In bringing about The Best of Dutch Book Design Premsela cooperated with BNO/Pictoright, the Dutch Foundation for Literature, SICA – Dutch Centre for International Cultural Activities, and Stichting De Best Verzorgde Boeken.
