Best Book Designs 2015 Netherlands And Flanders
The annual catalogue of the Best Dutch Book Designs transformed this year to accommodate a selection of books from both the Netherlands and Flanders. With the two regions acting together as guest country at the 2016 Frankfurt Book Fair, it was a natural decision to mount a joint selection, the result of which is 33 Dutch and 17 Flemish Best Designed Books. As always, an eye for innovation and inventive image-text symbiosis was given priority, as was the “necessity” of a project, according to Dirk Leyman, author of the judges’ report. The publication presenting the chosen books was designed by Irma Boom, with data printed on fine, semi-transparent paper in grey tones.
