Release video The Best Dutch Book Designs


Today an introductory film is released. It explains how a best-designed book is realized through the collaboration between the designer, technical production (lithographer, printer, binder), and publisher/client. As is apparent each year, the best books are created when the creative energy of all the involved parties is channeled in the right direction.

The film features Astrid Vorstermans (jury member and publisher/founder of Valiz), Freek Kuin (former jury member and creative director at Drukkerij Robstolk), Mariska Bijl (lithographer, Wilco Art Books), Thomas Castro (jury member, designer, and Curator of Graphic Design at the Stedelijk Museum), and Rickey Tax (curator at House of the Book, where the collection is archived).

Production: JTtv.
