However the result is reached, the selection of the Best Dutch Book Designs has for years no longer been simply a question of the finest printing or binding, nor of the best typography. Instead, it is a matter of weighing the relationship with the contents, chosen design, and technical execution. It is important to note how craftsmanship and attention to detail can influence the concept and aim of a book, and the way in which these are perceived. Every aspect of the process (preparation, selection, judging, observations, conclusions, etc.) is exhaustively covered in this small, brick-like volume, including illustrated insights into the more than 30 awarded titles. Published by Best Verzorgde Boeken (Amsterdam).
