In 2003, my friends Francis Boeske and Hans Gieles of the Amsterdam gallery VOUS ETES ICI (French for “You are here”) invited me to design their series of small catalogues. Each was to be a monograph dedicated to one of their artists. As most of the booklets only had around 40 pages, I proposed to add volume by using sturdy cardboard as front and back covers, with the title silkscreened in one colour. The spines were covered with black canvas. I chose a different typeface for each cover, each somehow referring to the artist’s work; the same type family became the secondary face of the interior typography. I produced the books together with Catherine Dal (my partner in studio Dorp & Dal) who did typesetting and proofreading.
The fourth book in the series: works from 2001 to 2006 by painter Lieven Hendriks.
