Irma Boom’s books

This is Kind of a must see if you are into designing books, which is something I really want to be good at.

Irma Boom is an amazing Dutch book designer.

In the video she talks about +/- 21 books she has designed in her career. What I really like is her honesty when she talks about the troubles she had making each book.

Towards the end she shows her “dummy” books that she makes to see how the book comes together. What’s really interesting is how tiny the dummies are, like 5cm or so. When we design something at school we tend to print a test page in real size s we can really see what the end result would be so I ask myself how it would be if we did it that way. But I guess she really does it most  for the fun than for checking mistakes or whatever.
