The Best Dutch Book Designs of 2018 announced

CPNB News

The thirty-three Best Dutch Book Designs 2018 have been announced. A total of 295 entries were assessed for their distinctive qualities by a panel of experts looking for outstanding work in such areas as content, design, picture editing, typography, choice of materials, printing and binding.

 

This year’s panel of judges consisted of Michaël Snitker (designer), Mijke Wondergem (designer), Eelco van Welie (managing director, NAI010 publishers), Martijn Kicken (consultant at Tielen printers) and Suzanna Héman (assistant curator, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam).

 

The thirty-three books selected can be admired in an exhibition at the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam to be held in the autumn, coinciding with the publication of this year’s catalogue.

 

This will be the third time a separate selection from the entries has been made by a panel consisting of five students at leading Dutch colleges and academies in the field of graphic design. The results of their deliberations will be made known in June.
