Slanted in Amsterdam: Irma Boom

Slanted Magazine #41—Amsterdam

Author: Josephine Schroeder

Diving into Amsterdam’s design scene, Slanted ventures into the captivating capital of the Netherlands, revealing its creative marvels in our latest 41st issue. Our quest for inspiration brought us to the extraordinary Irma Boom, a warm and remarkable artist, graciously opening the doors of her creative sanctuary.

Irma Boom is an Amsterdam based bookmaker. Her experimental approach challenges the conventions of the traditional book. She teaches at Yale and Harvard Universities and lectures worldwide. MoMA, the Vatican Library, and the Centre Pompidou have her books in their permanent collections. The University of Amsterdam has her Living Archive. She has been awarded the Gutenberg Prize, the Johannes Vermeer Prize, and many other prizes.

The work of Irma Boom can be found in the Slanted Magazine #41—Amsterdam. Additionally we shot a video interview with her, talking about her point of view on design and opinion about the future. Take a look at the Amsterdam issue and the video platform for diverse opinions, impressions, inspiration, and motivation.
