Irma Boom (Dutch, 1960-) 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 honor 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 catalog; this miniature book (38 X 50 mm) contains a complete overview of her work, with commentary and more than 450 full color illustrations in 704 pages with printed edges.
