The Ideal Book - Private Presses In The Netherlands
by Paul Van Capelleveen
Publisher's Description
Presents an overview of the hundred-year old Dutch private press-movement: a relatively small, yet exceedingly dynamic, creative and influential part of the Dutch book culture. Passionate book lovers were and still are producing extraordinary editions at home. These books appeared in limited editions, printed on extraordinary paper, often with specially created fonts and designed with care. This illustrated survey starts with the pioneers J.C. Bloem, J. Greshoff, P.N. van Eyck and J.F. van Royen – continues via internationally known artists such as S.H. de Roos and H.N. Werkman to the pragmatic printers who now operate in the margins of the book trade. Edited by Paul van Capelleveen en Clemens de Wolf.
