Publisher Voetnoot

Idea Code 19017

Jos Houweling celebrates the founding of Amsterdam 744 years ago with a collection of pictures and photo collages filled with realism, self-mockery, and irony. This book is a sequel to ‘700 Cents Book’, which Houweling published in 1975 to mark the 700th anniversary of the Dutch capital. In that book, he focused on street furniture; now, in ‘Amsterdam 744’, he inhabits the minds of tourists. What do the hordes of visitors to the city hope to see? Full of tongue-in-cheek Amsterdam humour and vivid details, the book follows the famous canals and sights from one side of the city to the other, and back again. It is for people who love Amsterdam and for tourists not planning to go there.

200 p, ills colour, 30 x 21 cm, pb, Dutch/French/English
