The Most Believed Fairy Tale
From almost 600 entries from 32 countries, the international jury of Schönste Bücher aus aller Welt has granted four awards to the Dutch-Flemish selection of the Best Dutch Books Designs of 2015, including the main prize. The awards ceremony will take place on Friday 18 March during the Leipziger Buchmesse.‘The most Believed Fairy Tale’ designed by De Vormforensen receives one of five bronze medals.
De Vormforensen (Annelou van Griensven and Anne-Marie Geurink) are books makers who, like some kind of graphical anthropologists, are searching for strange subcultures, hypes and shifts in our society. For ‘The Most Believed Fairy Tale’ they went deeply into the world of usurious insurance policies, pension gaps, the bubble economy, the bonus culture and the ME culture.
The Most Believed Fairy Tale has become a children’s book in which the system of our economy is put in a new perspective. The book consists of a story with illustrations by Lyanne Tonk, cheating pages, a secret index and a big golden sun that makes everyone greedy.
