Schermafbeelding 2021-07-05 om 13.16.24

Beside the many exhibition posters for  DE ZONNEHOF  that i have added recently, there is also this publication on Gerrit Rietveld , who’s architectural design was chosen for the ZONNEHOF museum in Amersfoort. The book tells the story and history of the ZONNEHOF and Gerrit Rietveld, but what struck me most is that the photography was done by the very best in dutch photography from the past 100 years. The colofon reads like a “who is Who” in dutch photography..names: Eva Besnyö, Cas Oorthuys, Gerrit Oorthuys. the book is now available at www.ftn-books.com

Zonnehof Amersfoort posters

From the same source as the Crouwel posters of yesterdays blog comes this series of posters for the ZONNEHOF AMERSFOORT museum. Later this would become the Armando museum, but in the Sixties and Seventies they had their own small program of exhibitions. Well worth visiting and it is interesting to see that also a smaller dutch museum thought it important that design and typography of their publications was important. The main part of these series was designed by van den Brink. All are now available at www.ftn-books.com
