Exhibition has started. Catalogue is available

 

 

September 29, 2017

 

For the first time this year the 33 Best Dutch Book Designs are on public display at the Stedelijk Museum. This afternoon the exhibition will be opened and the creators, designers, lithographers, printers and binders are being honoured.


The catalogue is designed by Haico Beukers and Marga Scholma. Leading principle  in their design is the equivalence of the 33 selected books: each book is judged on their own merits. All books should have their own place on the front cover. This reasoning resulted in 33 editions: all winning books have their own section with a photograph of the book on the first page. The sections are bound interchangeably and at a certain moment each section will be the first and therefore will be the cover.

The price of the catalogue is € 29.50 and can be ordered at your local bookshop.


The exhibition closes at October 29th.

Registration for The Best Dutch Book Designs is open till Friday January 7. Publishers, designers, printers, artists, authors, academy students and other bookmakers can submit the books made in 2016.

What are the requirements? What is the submission fee? The answers can be found in the Regulations

The Dutch selection will be submitted to the international competition, The Best Book Designs from all over the World (Leipzig).  The Dutch and the international selection will be announched at March 3 2017. Later in the year the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam will exhibit the Dutch awards; the offical  catalogue will be published at the same time.

Shanghai - Beijing - Moscow

 

 

September 27, 2016

 

The Best Book Designs from the Netherlands and Flanders are travelling around the world. They were exhibited at the Shanghai Book Fair (end of August) and the Russian National Book Festival 'Zhar-Kniga' (September 19 till 26). This week the books are still on display in Beijing where the Design Week is held.

Often the organizing institute invites Dutch designers to give a presentation or a workshop. In Shanghai Thomas Castro (LUST) and Titus Knegtel (winner Golden Letter Schönste Bücher aus aller Welt 2016) gave presentations as Haico Beukers and Marga Scholma did in Moscow.

Students are getting involved

 

 

September 5, 2016

 

The new policy of the Stichting The Best Book Designs is cranking up the exchange of ideas and experience between the next generation of book makers and the established order.

 

As part of this change in policy, this year saw entry fees waived for students at academies and colleges, and for new graduates. The books made by students are part of the total amount of entries and were examined in exactly the same way as other entries.

 

This year a student panel consisting of design students at Dutch and Flemish art academies and colleges were installed. They followed the same procedures as the professional panel and they presented also a comprehensive report. Both the selection and the judges’ report are being made available online (as an appendix to the Stichting’s website) and in a catalogue (www.bol.com). Catalogue and website have been designed as degree projects by Floor Weijs, Sander Molenaar, Lieke de Blank and Bernd de Ridder, all students at ArtEZ, the Arnhem Academy of Art and Design.

Catalogue by Irma Boom is available

 

 

September 2, 2016

 

The brand new catalogue The Best  Book Designs from the Netherlands and Flanders 2015 | De Best Verzorgde Boeken van Nederland en Vlaanderen is available!

 

It is a typical Irma Boom product: powerful in all its simplicity. The book excells in great tactility thanks to the 60gsm paper (IBO ONE supplied by Igepa) that has been used for the interior and the double folded cover. The 33 Dutch and 17 Flemish books  are being presented in black and white photographs in 256 pages.

 

Irma Boom wrote especially for this catalogue a manifesto in which she presents herself as the passionate lover of paper books that she is. A must read.

 

The catalogue could be made because of the hard work of printer Tielen (Boxtel) and book binders Patis (Den Dolder( and Hexspoor (Boxtel). The paper was donated by Igepa.

 

Softcover € 29,50 | ISBN 978 90 5965 393 1 | 256 p. | 173 x 238 mm

Dutch-Flemish selection on display

 

 

September 2, 2016

 

The cultural season has started! One of the highlights is the exhibition of The Best Book Designs from the Netherlands and Flanders at the Stedelijk Museum. The books can be held and looked into. The exhibition runs until Sunday 30th October.

 

This year is a special edition: in addition to 33 Dutch books there are 17 Flemish books selected by a Dutch-Flemish jury. Why? Because the Netherlands and Flanders will be Guests of Honour at the Frankfurt Book Fair 2016. For this special occasion The Best Dutch Book Designs joined forces with Flanders. 

 

This afternoon the ceremony will be held where the authors, publishers, designers, lithographers, printers and binders of the selected books are going to be honored. They will receive a certificate and the catalogue which is designed by Irma Boom. Catalogue and books are for sale at the museum shop.

 

The ceremony starts with lectures and a discussion about the differences and similarities between Dutch and Flemish culture.

The Best Dutch and Flemish Book Designs 2015

 

 

February 22, 2016

 

The Best Dutch Book Designs of 2015 are known!


This year we are proud to present a special selection of 33 Dutch and 17 Flemish books. Because the Netherlands and Flanders are Guest of Honour at the Frankfurt Book Fair 2016 the Flemish Publishers Association and our organisation have worked together to reach a joined competition.



Publishers, commisioners, designers, printers and binders have submitted books that appeared in 2015 amounting to 410 books in total. They were judged by a Dutch-Flemish panel consisting of Carolien Glazenburg (curator at the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam), Wouter Roelants (bookseller and publisher), Luc Derycke (designer, Ghent), Koen Brams (former director Jan van Eyck Academie & former chief editor De Witte Raaf) and Freek Kuin (creative director at printer robstolk®). Books in which one of the judges was involved were nominated for election by a shadow panel consisting of former Best Dutch Book Designs judges.
