The Best Posters of 1990-2020 collected in one book.
Thirty years passed between the oldest and the newest poster with the Studio BOOT. The 198 most controversial creations have now been collected in the stimulating overview BOOT Plakt. And part of it can be admired from 17 October at Piet Hein Eek in Eindhoven.
Since its foundation in 1991, Edwin Vollebergh (1962) and Petra Janssen (1966) of Studio BOOT have found each other in a shared curiosity, eagerness and zest for work. The assignments of the Bossche design studio are no longer limited to graphic work and also include product design and spatial design. ‘Whatever form or medium we choose, we strive for a stimulating, surprising image.’
From the stream of posters that Edwin in particular conceived, illustrated and often hand-lettered between 1990 and 2020, the 198 most beautiful, most exciting examples have been collected in a book. BOOT Plakt contains 30 years of BOOT: a poster oeuvre in 198 eye-catching, stimulating, witty posters. Once made to hang out in the wild, now saved from volatility in an attractive 224 page book. Presented on a silver platter, with 13 commandments for the novice and advanced designer. Plus: a brief explanation of the work in the light of post-war poster history. BOOT Plakt is 30 years of poster art that will grab you by the neck. So obtrusive and so versatile that you want to admire ‘the real thing’ in its actual size. And that is also possible, coincidentally. From October 17th a selection of the posters from the book can be viewed at Piet Hein Eek in Eindhoven.
