Bookcovers I

For a schoolassignment we had to make a series of bookcovers. I chose to make two (see next post) For these series I was inspired by the Afrikaanse language that is very similar to Dutch. It’s not as funny for people who don’t know Dutch for you can’t understand the similarities or differences between the two.
Below are the meanings of the words in Afrikaans, Dutch and English.
Everything written (like the biography) is fiction.

brak(kie)
(bastaard)hond
stray dog, mixed breed dog

huurmotor
taxi

knoffelhuisie
teentje knoflook
piece of garlic

gramadoelas
wildernis, zeer ver weg van de bewoonde wereld
wilderness

kaggel
open haard
fireplace
   

Bookcovers II - remake
For a schoolassignment we had to make a series of bookcovers. I chose to make a series inspired by existing ones and make my own rendition of them.

Arnhem souvenir, cardholder

For a schoolassignment we had to create a souvenir for the city of Arnhem; no cliché stereotyical gifts but new ones. First I thought I had to make clear what a souvenir was for me personally. This would be something, a memory that you keep from a place rather than a tangible thing like a mug or a magnet to go on your fridge. For me memories are moments which you capture by taking pictures, or maybe more formally by buying picture postcards.

I also wanted to combine the historical aspect of the city; the old buildings - some of them destroyed, some of them preserved. I digged into the Gelderlandse archives and searched for interesting buildings. These I traced in Illustrator and cut them out with a lasercutter.

With these you can play and remake your own Arnhem. At the same time you can read and learn about when the buildings were built and what their original addresses are.

Between the houses and trees you can put your pictures or cards - the memories that you made - and place them between the old, already excisting memories and history of the city, creating new landscapes with your own pictures.
