Sculpted Words

Every year CPNB (Col­lec­tive­ Pro­mo­tion Dutch Lit­er­a­ture) organ­izes Dutch Book Week with the aim of pro­moting Dutch ­lit­er­a­ture, and every year a spe­cific genre is pro­filed. This year: Autobiography. The official theme is ‘Geschreven­Portret­ten’, or in other words, ‘Writ­ten Por­traits’.

Ad agency Van Wanten Etcetera commissioned Souverein to fashion a number of sculptural book ‘portraits’ which bare the likeness of each of the esteemed autobiographers. Included among them are Anne Frank, Vincent Van Gogh, Louis Van Gall and Kader Abdolah.
