Rijksmuseum by Wijnanda Deroo ( Book )
2 editions published in 2013 in Dutch and English and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Dutch/American photographer Wijnanda Deroo has followed and photographed the renovation and transformation of the Rijksmuseum since 2004. This beautiful book designed by Irma Boom is being published to mark the museum's re-opening in 2013, bringing together the best of these photos. Deroo won international fame with her intriguing, meticulous photos, devoid of human presence, of the interiors of offices, hotels, public buildings, restaurants and homes. For the Rijksmuseum she accumulated, in the same way and over a period of nearly 10 years, an impressive period document of the new Rijksmuseum under construction. The photos of the museum, which is steadily inching toward its re-opening, bear her unmistakable stamp. The work of Wijnanda Deroo (b. 1955) is part of leading collections, including the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York, the Centre Pompidou in Paris and the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam

Irma Boom has become one of the most widely renowned and laureated book designers in the world today. Her often ingenious solutions to individual book productions have gained her international fame and her work is now collected by many leading museums such as the MoMa in New York. Besides book designs she also creates corporate identities, postage stamps and posters. The special collections of the University of Amsterdam library will honour Irma Boom with a major retrospective exhibition of her work. Her studio archive was donated to the library in 2003. To accompany this exhibition she produced an exceptional catalogue; this miniature book (38 X 50 mm) contains a complete overview of her work, with commentary and more than 450 full colour illustrations in 704 pages with printed edges.

Colour, based on nature by Irma Boom ( Book )
3 editions published in 2012 in English and Dutch and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Takes the concept of Irma Boom's previous work further afield, highlighting UNESCO World Heritage sites across the globe and on every continent. This time, the colour diagrams are derived from 80 natural locations designated by the UNESCO list. It is an exercise in describing without words, using instead colours to evoke and celebrate the essence of a place. Detailed information about the World Heritage properties, their selection criteria, how many are inscribed per nation and in what regions such sites are most endangered makes this an important tribute to the reasons such places exist

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Once there was a nation that went to war, but after they conquered a continent their own country was destroyed by atom bombs... then the victors imposed democracy on the vanquished. For a group of apprentice architects, artists, and designers, led by a visionary, the dire situation of their country was not an obstacle but an inspiration to plan and think... although they were very different characters, the architects worked closely together to realize their dreams, staunchly supported by a super-creative bureaucracy and an activist state... after 15 years of incubation, they surprised the world with a new architecture--Metabolism--that proposed a radical makeover of the entire land... Then newspapers, magazines, and TV turned the architects into heroes: thinkers and doers, thoroughly modern men..."--P. [4] de la couv
