Irma Boom is one of the greatest and most prolific book designers working today. With more than 380 books to her name, the Dutch designer is renowned for the way she challenges the format to make each volume a unique experience.
This retrospective exhibition gets inside her craft, revealing not just her creative process but the power of the book itself. With this exhibition, Boom has set herself the challenge of finding novel ways to tell the story of her practice.
The exhibition will feature Boom's collaborations with Rem Koolhaas, Sheila Hicks, Chanel and many others, and bring to light the work of a master designer, even if she likes to call herself simply a “book maker”.
