This year a total of 295 entries were assessed for their distinctive qualities by a panel of experts looking for outstanding work in areas such as content, design, picture editing, typography, choice of materials, printing, and binding. The Best Dutch Book Designs 2018 presents a comprehensive overview of the 33 selections made during this difficult yet rewarding process. The catalogue includes detailed information about each publication, its technical execution, and unique insights into the significant aspects that made each one a cut above the rest. This year’s panel of judges consisted of Michaël Snitker, Mijke Wondergem, Eelco van Welie, Martijn Kicken, and Suzanna Héman.
