Among the many many titles on art and design that i now have for sale. Quite a number is designed by Toon MIchiels, who was the ‘House” designer of the Avenue magazine. Beside his designs he was also known for his documentary photography, often combining both disciplines into a very personal publication His publication on a farmer couple in Brabant, ” ZELDZAME MENSEN”, was such a publ;ication . The publications got critical praise and the photographs reminded people of the farmer scenes they knew from the van Gogh paintings.
