Their name represents what they stand for as a collective; A collective in the vanguard of the profession. Defending the importance of the tangible publication in a digital world.
“The idea for The Book Front had been playing in my head for a while. In 2019 I closed my design studio after 10 years to focus fully on brand strategy. But I started to miss the tangible, the paper, the ink,…. I have a great passion for print and for the tangible book in particular. During the first lockdown, I found the time and peace to further develop the idea for The Book Front. Now, in addition to my work as a strategist, I can work with the collective on beautiful book productions.”
“We all have our own speciality, but we are united by a passion for print and design that excels in terms of content, look and feel: Anne Roos Hosters, Iris Peters, Martijn Kicken, Peter Korsman, Stephan Lerou, Thomas van Oorschot, Tim Verbakel.”
