Subjective atlas of the Netherlands

This atlas has been made by students of Design Academy Eindhoven, department ‘Man & Communication. In the turbulent spring of 2005 Annelys de Vet (tutor) asked them to map the Netherlands, based on personal involvement. Over the summer they collaborated to edit all towards this inspiring book, published by BIS Publishers.

The image of the Netherlands is instable. Old pictures aren’t sufficient anymore and new ones are being searched for. More then a dozen students of the Design Academy Eindhoven have mapped the Netherlands with its habits, citizens, culture and language. Personal involvement and interest always as a starting point.

By means of graphs, indexes, photographs, drawings and maps the lowlands are put in perspective. From bicycle tales and weapon export, to zapping from brand to brand and concerning gentle forgotten guilders. From inland country and fears, to foreign countries and dreams. These non-conventional pictures give a surprising insight in what binds the Dutch.
