Haags Gemeentemuseum ( continued )

In the mid Eighties , financing the museums in the Netherland required some changes. One of the changes was we looked for cheaper printing possiblilties and found these with a Belgium printer and lithographer. Snoeck Ducaju became one of the new partners of the museum together with de Buck for the lithography. Both have become household names in the printing world, but at that time it was a kind of a gamble, since the distance made it much harder ( only telephone and fax were available). Still the first results were excellent. Just look at these 2 timeless beautiful publications , designed by Donald Janssen and printed by Snoek in 1986 and 1987. Many others would follow but these are still standing out and are proof of the quality publications published in those years.

Both are available at
