Rijks Museum by Wijnanda Deroo( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and Dutch and held by 67 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

Colour, based on nature by Irma Boom( Book )

3 editions published in 2012 in English and Dutch and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Colour based on nature' 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
Irma Boom: biography in books : books in reverse chronological order, 2010-1986 : with comments here and there by Mathieu Lommen( Book )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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.
