This was a nice read and I would recommend for anyone who loves architecture, architectural history, travel and European design. The Dutch have always been great engineers and designers; this books walks you through Dutch history from an architect / designer's point of view. The imagery is exotic and enticing and is accompanied by some great narrative. It was a very refreshing read!

this has been on my wish-list for some time since I became obsessed with Irma Boom's design.

Since there is no choice of 'abandoned' or 'couldn't finish' I'm marking this 'read' to get it off of my 'currently reading list'.

I'm finding the language a bit pompous and overblown which makes it very difficult for me to get to the real meaning of the 'flowery, purple' prose
Very well-designed book that presents an amazing range of Dutch design. Great focus on graphic design, of course, but touches on products and architecture as well.
Great book about Dutch design. Designed by super-genius, Dutch designer Irma Boom.
book is well put together but few lasting impressions
