Avans200 / Le Grand Tour 1812-2012

The art academie AKV|St.Joost exists 200 years in 2012. Nowadays a subsidiary of Avans it was Avans who celebrated the 200 years anniversary. They asked us to design the festivities logo and identity which can be found here as well as the jubilee book.

The outcome is a colourful design that tells the history with typography rather than images. All images from the past are hidden in the japanese bound spreads. The only images in the 'visible' book are the great contemporary pictures taken by Annegien van Doorn. Bound together in a separate part at the end of the book.

Hardbound, 200 pages, 290 x 230 mm. White linen bound cover. 4 different sorts of paper. 4 extra colours. 7 japanese folded and hidden spreads. 5 fold out pages. 2 quires with a different size. 2 embossments and one foile print.

The limited edition of 200 copies comes with an alternative cover and slipcase and a waterlasered 1mm stainless steel bookmarker.
