Event Details

Birthday: 15.12.1960

Birthplace: Lochem, Neatherlands

The constant progression of the letterpress and the widespread distribution of the technology were major factors in the Reformation and the Enlightenment much later. On the outside, little has changed to the book itself since Guttenberg’s invention in 1450. That’s something Irma Boom tries to change with her innovative book concepts. She doesn’t think that the book is merely a text bearer. They are objects that are directly connected to the content and not meant to be read in a linear fashion.
