temporary ‘dingen’

i attended the best dutch books ceremony last friday in the stedelijk museum, we all received a special customised ‘winners’ version of this years catalogue, very competently made this year by ‘niels schrader’, there was some less good news too which i hadn’t yet heard: designer and curator ‘maarten jongema’ sadly, recently passed away after a serious illness… see here an obituary from fellow-designer harmen liemburg

in the books introduction text i read that my personal entry this year (and the one i was really hoping to get selected): the ‘façade’ recycled book, was a candidate till the last minute; i.e. it ‘very nearly’ made the selection…oh well (pictured above and see also this related post)

for the two ‘dingen’ books which did make the 2010 selection see these related posts here, here, and here, plus last years’ award-winning one here
