In 2004 I received a phone call from Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam. My work had been selected for an exhibition. A phone call later I was asked to design the catalogue for the Municipal Art Acquisitions 2004-2005. A surreal assignment from such an established client straight after finishing art school. A total of 84 designers and design studio's had sent in their work for the selection of this exhibition. Amongst them many of my friends. For the catalogue I decided to put all the 84 entries into the book forming a good snapshot of graphic design in Amsterdam in that year. Stedelijk Museum only selected 20 entries for the exhibition. The remaining 64 entries were punched out of the catalogue.
I still get requests for selling and exhibiting this book. The last time I saw a copy for sale was at second hand bookstore De Slegte.
