On the waves of the city

3 August, 2009  |   No comments

Museum Het Schip is an institution devoted to preserving the work of the Amsterdamse School of architecture. It is located in Spaarndammerplantsoen 140 in one of the most beautiful building complexes in the city. Among its latest publications is a well-illustrated cycling guide ‘On the Waves of the City.’
The booklet is packed full of useful information, fine photography—by Floris Leeuwenberg—and is elegantly designed by studio Barlock from The Hague, It is an invitation to discover, by bike, the many architectural marvels of this socially-motivated group of artists of the early XX century.

We, at Re-Type, were pleasantly surprised to find the guide using our font family ‘Kurversbrug‘ (the Amsterdam’s bridges revival) for its cover and titles. As admirers of the Amsterdamse School movement, we are honoured to take part in this great little book. Many thanks to Barlock and Museum Het Schip.
The book exist in separated english and dutch version and can be ordered here.
