For the “Best Dutch Book Designs” awards, 30 books were selected out of more than 300 candidates by a four-person panel comprised of Jan de Boer, Frederike Huygen, Fokko Tamminga and Astrid Vorstermans. The winners are presented here, along with a general overview of observed trends in publishing in the Netherlands.
