nijhof & lee @ bijzondere collecties

i attended a small, private reception on friday afternoon at the now defunct nijhof & lee bookshop in the staalstraat, the event was like a who’s who of dutch design with many respected names from several generations present

the occasion was that the owner ‘warren lee’ had something to share: despite many reports about the shop closing down the good news is that it is, in fact, continuing

due to open later this year as a store within the special collections department of the university of amsterdam (where the recent ‘irma boom’ book design exhibition was held) warren will be running the shop and it should be ready for business later this summer, the obvious advantage could be tie-ins with special exhibtions on specialised design & typography related subjects
