this week the selection of Best Verzorgde Boeken 2011 (best designed books) got announced. congratulations to all the winners! last year i complained about the poor communication by the organization and this year is no different unfortunately. as soon as i found about the selection i posted them on twitter and facebook but i feel the winners deserve a post on here as well.

i can’t find the jury rapport at this point but i think i’ll have to wait until autumn because that’s when the selection will be exhibited at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam. the catalog will be published around the same time.

if you’re interested in book judging, the korean magazine GRAPHIC devoted an issue to the phenomenon. you can order it at the GRAPHIC website.

you’re probably wondering ‘isn’t it a bit early to do a calendar post?’ and you’re right. i’m planning to do another calendar post like a did back in 2010 but i need you’re help. please let me know if you come across interesting calendars because i want to include them in my blogpost.

i am on the lookout for the following

  1. good concepts
  2. typography
  3. binding techniques
  4. sizes
  5. use of paper
  6. printing techniques

if you’re currently designing a calendar for 2012, please do not hesitate to get in touch, i might feature your design on iloveboeken. you can contact me through twitter or e-mail at printers and publishers can also contact me of course!
