Dear reader, “I have no special talents. I am only passionately curious.” - Albert Einstein Without curiosity we don’t ask questions. Without questions we don’t uncover new knowledge and therefore don’t arrive at new insights. Curiosity is the energy that drives us to keep looking, to keep digging, to keep deepening our understanding. When we look at our authors and the books they write, I believe this is the common denominator. We try to seek out those titles that are refreshing, give new insights, teach you or help you, are beautifully designed or put a smile on your face, but always make you curious. I am happy to say that we have succeeded in this again this season. Einstein’s quote is used in the book ‘This Human’. It explains what it takes being the “human” designing for meaningful impact. A very interesting read, not only for designers, as it gives tremendous insight for everyone who is determined to have genuine and long-lasting impact with their work. This knowledge will also be of help in creating an excellent Customer EXperience as ‘CEX sells’. A wonderful inspirational book, showing how front-runners worldwide have optimized their customer experience. As design is now the key driver of innovation and change within organizations across the globe, ‘Transformations’ teaches why, how and when to use design to drive change in your organization. We believe that innovation requires employees to work together and use both the left and right side of their brain. Teams that use the so-called “whole brain function” are more agile and are able to both imagine and implement. We see that visual thinking and drawing are essential skills within business settings that can boost these qualities. Willemien Brand’s ‘Visual Thinking’ provides an informative, easy to follow and fun introduction into the basics of visual thinking and drawing.
In addition to these books and learning more about trend research and roadmapping, Sofie Beier wrote a book filled with tips and tricks about designing type. A must-have for every type student and type designer! And for all designers out there we have a great lexicon with (un)useful creative knowledge; ‘HotchPotch’. A book where Coco Chanel, David Carson and Chupa Chups come together on a spread to create inspirational connections and knowledge. In our gift category, I am happy to announce a new up-and-coming, not-to-be-missed talent Sara van de Ven, author of ‘The Book of Do-ness’! Without being biased, as Sara is a treasured asset of the BIS team, she did an excellent job putting together this fun gift book. It’s a practical and useful guide for all the people out there who want to spend less time in the digital realms and need a little help in finding new ideas to do so. With 234.5 ideas you’ll never get bored and hopefully train your ability to think a bit more outside of the box when it comes to DO-ing things. After ‘Don’t Eat the Yellow Snow’ Marcus Kraft treats us to a new edition of “pop music wisdom”. This time focused on LOVE, probably the most important inspiration for songwriters of all times. A collection of the best songs for times when solid advice is needed. There is more, 13 new titles in total. So if you have some time on your hands or are in need of inspiration, read on… Or wander around on www.bispublishers.com for even more information and a preview of our books. Don’t forget to stay connected via our social networks; like, share, and spread the word! As always, if you have a good idea for a new project, don’t hesitate to contact us. We would love to hear from you! The BIS Publishers team, Bionda Dias Bionda@bispublishers.com

New titles This Human Applying Human Principles to Design Thinking By Melis Senova ‘This Human’ is about the person who is doing the designing. There are many great design books in existence that teach us about design process, tools and methods. With the increasing popularity of design thinking and human-centred design we’ve also seen more material discussing various aspects of the practice. One missing aspect, almost in an ironic twist, is what it takes to be the actual person who is doing the designing.
• For people that are interested in creating something meaningful • Empowers people to maximise the impact of their work • The practical approach makes it easy to understand the importance of human-centred design
The name ‘This Human’ is referring to that person. The person who needs to observe to gain insight, to makes sense of their observations in a way that isn’t biased by their own world views. The person who needs to communicate in many different ways with many different intentions to communicate information which is often hard to access, difficult to grasp and just not that tangible. The person who is so passionate about having a positive impact they become exhausted one third of the way into their project. This book helps these people to learn more about themselves and how to think and be in their practice of design—to help them grasp all that is going on inside that then influences their creations. Dr. Melis Senova is a pioneer in design thinking, the founder of her own global strategic design consultancy, Huddle, and a highly-regarded and enterprising thought leader. 192 pages | 23 x 17 cm | Paperback | ISBN 978 90 6369 460 9 | £28.00 Publication date: March 2017

In his book Letters of Credit, the typographer Walter Tracy proposed the following method of spacing upper- and lower-case letters.
Demonstrated in Outsiders.
Due to their symmetrical proportions, the standard letters of the upper-case alphabet are:
Divide the letters into the following groups: Straight vertical strokes:
Start out with a row of the letter 'H'. You should aim for a distance from the stem to the outmost point of the side bearings that is a little less than half of the width between the two sterms of the letter. The space between two adjoining 'Hs' will then be slightly less than the space between the stems.
AV W X Y
Since bold weights normally have smaller counters, these weights will often be more narrowly fitted than lighter weights.
The odd ones:
Interpolation and extrapolation
Compatible points in interpolation
Steady rhythm r cho An ints po
In interpolation you create an extra weight based on two extreme weights, while in extrapolation you create the extra weight by adding or subtracting weight from one master weight. Ovink.
The distance between the verticals of the letter 'o' should be slightly bigger than the distance between the verticals of the letter 'n'. The size of the counter in the letters 'd', 'p', 'b', and 'q' should be somewhere in between the values of the counters in 'o' and 'n'.
The length of the serifs
The enclosed space of 'u' and 'n' f is seri d The ted an d se rota rimpo e sup
To avoid the serif seemig to close up the counter in letters with two stems, the inside serifs are often shorter than the serifs on the outside of the stems. Swift Neue.
If you aim to interpolate two extreme weights, the weights should be created with compatible outlines in such a way that the same glyph in the two weights is built from the same number of anchor points, have the same starting point, and the same counter direction. If the points are not compatible, the glyph outline will be distorted.
Eurostile Bold Extended
For text typefaces, the diacritics should generally have the same optical weight as the letter.
To unify the vertical aligment, you may use the placement of the grave and acute accents as your guideline for centring the other diacritics.
The vertical and horizontal sides of an angular shaped 'o' should be slightly rounded. Otherwise, the shift between the round corner and the straight sides will seem too abrupt, and the straight area may appear to bend inwards.

The 'n' typically has serifs on both sides of the inner counter, while the 'u' only has an inner serif on the right stem. For the enclosed space of the two letters to appear identical, the width of the 'u' will sometimes need to be slightly narrower than the width of the 'n'. Outsiders and Miller.

Recent titles Concept Code How to Create Meaningful Concepts By Gaby Crucq-Toffolo and Sanne Knitel Conceptual thinking involves adding vision to a product, service, or organisation. Content is key, as it determines the coherence of the concept. Consumers want to experience every aspect of the concept. In addition, the producer must meet the emotional and functional needs of the consumer. Therefore, while it is necessary to “think conceptually”, it is also important to “do conceptually”; a concept must be executable (doable). In order to attract and bind your consumer, your concept becomes vital for your success. ‘Concept Code’ guides you through every stage of bringing life to an idea in order for it to grow into a fully matured concept. It also gives insight into the importance of the consumer’s mind and how this functions in to make your concept successful.

Recent titles Strategic Design Eight Essential Practices Every Strategic Designer must Master By Dr. Giulia Calabretta, Prof. Gerda Gemser and Dr. Ingo Karpen Design professionals’ in innovation are no longer just executors of new product and/or service design briefs but are increasingly involved in the crafting of these briefs and in the strategic decisions leading to these briefs. Their rol is growing towards a more strategic one. In order to effectively play this role, design professionals need to master a set of strategic practices – i.e., routinized actions and ways of working. However, many designers lack knowledge on specific practices for acting effectively on a strategic level in innovation projects. This book introduces eight strategic design practices. These practices help the design professionals become familiar with effective tools for strategic innovation projects and give them a set of guidelines for easily and quickly applying these practices and tools. Dr. Giulia Calabretta is an Assistant Professor in Strategic Value of Design at the Delft University of Technology. Prof. Gerda Gemser is a Full Professor of Business and Design at RMIT.

Recent titles Thinking in Services Encoding and Expressing Strategy through Design By Majid Iqbal Design is the ultimate expression of policy and strategy. Expressing design in the form of a code makes it possible for every layer of the service enterprise to execute the design (code) in a fast and parallel manner. In order to deliver what has been promised at a much lower cost. For that purpose, the book introduces a system and method that go beyond blueprints and customer journey maps, to broaden the appeal of service design for strategists, economists, and budget analysts. ‘Thinking in Services’ introduces a powerful design language that appeals as much to creative professionals and programmers as it does to accountants, engineers, and lawyers. The code is written with the belief of raising the bar by lowering barriers. Raising the bar in design requires multidisciplinary efforts that are easier without standard language barriers. This patented system and method has, until now, only been available to a few large government and commercial enterprises, (Boeing, United HC). Majid Iqbal began this inquiry at Carnegie Mellon University, where he taught for six years, before becoming a consultant at Gartner and PwC. 240 pages | 23 x 17.5 cm | Paperback with flaps | ISBN 978 90 6369 430 2 | £29.95 Publication date: March 2017

DESIGN MY PRIVACY
WAT IS PRIVACY EIGENLIJK? Privacy is een door de Verenigde Naties erkend mensenrecht. Privacy vormt een belangrijke pijler onder verschillende vrijheden die we in de westerse wereld uiterst belangrijk vinden, zoals de vrijheid van meningsuiting, de vrijheid van samenkomst, en het recht op een goede rechtsgang (wanneer je bijvoorbeeld een privégesprek voert met een advocaat). Tegelijkertijd blijkt privacy voor veel mensen een moeilijk te vatten begrip. Dat komt door de verschillende manieren waarop privacy gedefinieerd kan worden en door de verschillende belangen en contexten waarin privacy een rol speelt. Laten we eens een aantal verschillende perspectieven op privacy bekijken. Binnen discussies over de definitie van privacy maakt men vaak onderscheid tussen de waarde van privacy voor het individu en de waarde voor de maatschappij als geheel.
Privacy als recht Om alleen gelaten te worden Het recht op privacy, dat vlak na de uitvinding van de paparazzi ontstond, werd oorspronkelijk (1890) omschreven als het recht van het individu om alleen gelaten te worden25. We gaan ervan uit dat we thuis niet bespioneerd worden en daar geheimen kunnen bewaren, zoals bijvoorbeeld over onze gezondheid of wat we in de slaapkamer doen. Bijna iedereen heeft thuis gordijnen in de slaapkamer. We genieten eigenlijk continu van onze privacy. Het is zo normaal dat we er bijna niet meer bij stil staan.
DESIGN MY PRIVACY
Denk al in de beginfase van een project na over hoe je met privacy en data omgaat. Dat klinkt (hopelijk) logisch, maar in de praktijk blijkt dit vaak niet het geval. In veel producten worden privacy features pas later ingebouwd, in het ergste geval pas na bezwaar door het brede publiek. Dit is niet altijd even eenvoudig, bijvoorbeeld omdat de software niet meer aangepast kan worden, de hardware infrastructuur niet goedkoop te vervangen is, of omdat het gekozen businessmodel het niet toestaat. Soms is privacyschending heel bewust tot stand gekomen, en wordt er gebruik gemaakt van zogenaamde 'dark patterns' om ervoor te zorgen dat mensen per ongeluk meer informatie weggeven dan ze willen. Onwil, bureaucreatie en kennisgebrek maken het lastig om deze problemen adequaat aan te pakken. Door er vroeg bij te zijn en deze vraagstukken op tijd te onderzoeken, kunnen deze problemen hopelijk zo goed mogelijk worden ondervangen. Dark Patterns p.123 Een goed voorbeeld is de OV-Chipkaart. Volgens Marleen Stikker, directrice van de Amsterdamse Waag Society, zijn bij het ontwerp van het OV-systeem duidelijk geen kritische hackers of privacy-deskundigen betrokken geweest49. Hierdoor doken er jarenlang veiligheidsproblemen op, die werden aangekaart door journalisten en hackers die zich zorgen maakten. Hoewel de oude OV-chipkaarten inmiddels zijn vervangen door duurdere, beter beveiligde varianten, blijft het systeem nog altijd privacy-onvriendelijk. Zo is het bijvoorbeeld onmogelijk om tegelijkertijd anoniem en met korting te reizen, iets dat voorheen wel kon50. Doordat anoniem reizen nu alleen tegen vol tarief mogelijk is, wordt dit effectief ontmoedigd. Slecht ontwerp kan zelfs levensgevaarlijk zijn. In 2015 bleek het mogelijk om een nieuw model auto’s van Jeep via het internet over te nemen en op afstand de remmen in te
drukken of de motor uit te zetten51. De enige manier om de software van updates te voorzien, was door een USBstick met update-software in het dashboard van de auto te steken. Chrysler, het moederbedrijf van Jeep, besloot toen om 1,4 miljoen Jeeps terug te roepen. Zo blijkt maar weer dat er schrikbarend slecht wordt nagedacht over de privacy en veiligheids-issues die kunnen ontstaan gedurende de volledige gebruikscyclus van een product of dienst. Dit is een probleem dat al langer speelt. Volgens een recente schatting door onderzoekers van het Franse kenniscentrum Eurecom en de Duitse RuhrUniversität is het, voor ongeveer een kwart van de op het internet aangesloten apparaten, zeer eenvoudig om ze over te nemen52. Deze apparaten zijn veelal te benaderen met bekende standaard wachtwoorden. De meeste problemen zullen niet snel worden opgelost. Vaak zijn bedrijven traag met het aanbieden van updates omdat het ze geld kost, iets dat een probleem vormt bij veel Android smartphones. In andere gevallen is er wel een oplossing beschikbaar, maar bereikt die het systeem niet. In het geval van de Jeeps van Chrysler moest er handmatig een USB-stick in het dashboard worden ingevoerd. Zo is er altijd een percentage apparaten dat door haar gebruikers niet geüpdatet wordt53. In het ergste geval is het product een flop, bereikt het ‘end of life’ status of gaat het bedrijf failliet. De meeste mensen blijven deze apparaten toch gebruiken. Zelfs een up-to-date apparaat kan morgen onveilig blijken wanneer hackers een nieuw lek ontdekken. Software bouwen is en blijft mensenwerk. Er gebeurt dus van alles tijdens de levensloop van een 'slim' product. Het is belangrijk dat een organisatie samen met een ontwerper op mogelijke problemen anticipeert en snel op in leert spelen. Dat kan door handleidingen en

My Little Piece of Privacy Het interactieve kunstwerk ‘My Little Piece of Privacy’ van kunstenaar Niklas Roy bestaat uit een klein verticaal gordijntje in een verder groot leeg raam. Wanneer er een voorbijganger langs loopt gaat het kleine gordijntje precies voor hem hangen, zodat hij alsnog niet goed naar binnen kan kijken. Hoe belangrijk het is om je aan het publieke oog te kunnen onttrekken werd mooi duidelijk in het project Super Stream Me van de VPRO26. De makers, Tim den Besten en Nicolaas Veul, hadden gepland dat ze drie weken lang hun hele leven live via het internet zouden uitzenden. Zelfs wanneer ze sliepen of naar de toilet gingen waren ze in beeld en te beluisteren. Er ontstond een brede schare online volgers. Uiteindelijk maakten ze maar twee weken vol: het was psychisch te zwaar om continu ‘de beste versie van jezelf’ te moeten spelen. Panopticon p.127

Recent titles The Divergent and Convergent Thinking Book By Dorte Nielsen Research shows that dividing thinking into divergent and convergent forms improves and increases idea production; this leads to unexpected thoughts and original solutions. Divergent thinking is used to generate ideas; convergent thinking helps in selecting the best ideas. The concept of divergent and convergent thinking is so integral to the creative process and innovative thinking that it is known as ‘the heartbeat of creativity’. It is the underlying rhythm of creative thinking. This book is an introduction to divergent and convergent thinking and includes guidelines to enhance innovative thinking, as well as handson exercises to strengthen creativity. The concept of the book is supported by its triangular shape, illustrating divergent and convergent thinking: the top half of the book communicates divergent thinking, while the bottom half communicates convergent thinking. This principle remains the same throughout the book. Dorte Nielsen is a creativity expert, author, keynote speaker and the founder of FourSight Denmark.

Recent titles Read Nothing in Here 21 Things you should Know about Nothing By Seema Sharma The word nothing might sound like a fart in the wind. A useless word that no one would bother to think about. But you might have forgotten that the greatest mathematicians have struggled with the question of where nothing begins and where it ends. The most brilliant philosophers have examined the meaning of nothingness for ages. Some of the world’s greatest thinkers have been racking their brains on whether there is even such a thing as nothing. In this book you will learn everything about nothing. This book is for the curious, the smart asses, and the conversation starters. And for everyone who needs more of nothing in their daily life. ‘Read Nothing in Here’ is an unscientific exploration into the meaning, function, history, and misuse of the word nothing.

Creative Chef Postcards
Outsider Art Memory Game
By Jasper Udink ten Cate
By Anja Brunt
A postcard book with 25 postcards about food. The cards are the Creative Chef’s visuals inspired by his work as an artist, food designer, and chef. Think ‘MacGyver food solutions’ and ‘Make Food not War’. His humour, creativity, and unique way of viewing the world are reflected in these cards.
‘Outsider Art Memory Game’ collects authentic works of art produced by off-beat artists. The task, as always, is to collect two cards that make one set. In this case, two artworks by the same artist. The sets are clearly recognisable by the style and expression of the artwork. To help, the brochure includes all the artworks in pairs and brief descriptions about the artists.
These postcards will bring a smile to your face! And that is exactly the aim of the author Jasper Udink ten Cate. Jasper Udink ten Cate is a food artist who designs food concepts to tease your brain. He loves food, art, music, stories, places, jokes, curiosa, old books, and most of all, the emotions people experience when they enjoy a meal. 25 postcards in a book | 15 x 10 cm | ISBN 978 90 6369 440 1 | £8.95

In this book, Steven McCarthy provides an overview of the phenomenon of Design Authorship and interviews many international designers who have taken on different roles as authors or producers of their own projects.
The object of ‘CO LAB:’ is to promote the ideals and methods of contemporary design collaboration by informing on cultural context, surveying some unexpected practitioners, and highlighting techniques and practices that apply to studio work and forward-thinking education initiatives. There will be three main sections with 10-20 short-burst chapters in each, befitting the collection/handbook format.

Design My Privacy
The Form of Design
This book is written to encourage designers to think about and to design for privacy issues. The technology behind the smart products and systems are so complex, that for the consumer it is difficult to understand what the consequences are for everyday life. Designers have to start thinking about transparency and accessibility in the design of privacy-sensitive products and services. This book offers the designer guidance that help with designing products and services.
Over the last few years, the web has become the standard for advertising, -communication, socialising and so on. However, we are living in a world of atoms, filled with things created either by nature or by ourselves. It will become more and more useful to get physical -products connected to the web. Design studio Booreiland is taking on the adventure of designing these Meta Products.
‘The Form of Design’ is the first all-encompassing book about the visual language of man-made products. It explains how mass produced objects evolve over time and what made them change. In the book the author materializes the governing rules of form evolution by means of 14 case studies. These case studies encompass a diversity of product families such as smart phones and bicycles, coffee machines and chairs, accompanied by charts and numerous illustrations that illuminate and elucidate the evolutionary processes involved.

Sketching: the Basics
Following the global success of Sketching, authors Koos Eissen and Roselien Steur now bring out the sequel entitled ‘Sketching: the Basics’. In fact, prequel would be a better word for this book, since it is aimed at the novice designer. ‘The Basics’ explains the rudiments of learning to draw both clearly and comprehensively using step-by-step illustrations, examples and strategies.
A book on sketching for product designers has long been desired. The lack of a good manual led the authors of this book, who both teach design drawing techniques, to take the task into their own hands. The result is an incredibly broad and practical survey of sketching techniques for product designers. This book can be regarded as a standard book on design sketching for product design students.

Few of us will appreciate whether the typeface we read is legible, but we quickly notice if it is not. Creating type for optimal legibility is therefore an ungrateful task, since readers only register your failures. This book will not only help type designers create high-legibility typefaces, but also help graphic designers determine the optimal typeface for a given project.
Writing, typesetting and printing have become part of almost everyone’s experience. However, many users are clueless about how fonts work and how to communicate best with readers. ‘Shaping Text’ takes a practical and broad approach to typography. It examines the constituting elements of graphic products, including type, image, ornament, layout, and color.
‘Type Tricks’ is about typographical rules and the underlying structure of the work process in the design of new typefaces. In that way, it is both a reference book and a user manual. In an illustrative format, it presents the different stages of type design in an accessible manner. This book is perfect for design students because it’s not only a reference book, it’s also a user manual

Architecture and spatial design
The Spontaneous City
This book showcases eye-opening ideas, concepts and trends that make a difference in the city of today and tomorrow. Based on five years of blogging on popupcity.net for an international audience of millions, ‘Pop-Up City’ shows the birth of a new dimension in city-making based on groundbreaking ideas that take ‘pop-up’ as a starting point, varying from modular hotels and parasite cinemas to urban hacking, rooftop farms, and foldable houses.
This book presents the concept of ’The Spontaneous City’ as an alternative direction of design thinking and urban planning, as opposed to traditional rigid city planning. This city is user-centered, never finished, and the result of supply and demand. The book draws on the work and experience of Gert Urhahn, who works as an urban designer and architect in the city of Amsterdam.

Architecture and spatial design
Folding is a relatively new trend in architecture. It’s a very playful way of designing and offers free rein to spontaneity during the design process. This book gives insight into the possibilities together with results of the research the architectural faculty of TU Delft conducted into this technique since 2001. Vividly illustrated with a survey of much-discussed concepts, projects and buildings.
The core idea for this book is the use of operative verbs as tools for designing space. These operative verbs abstract the idea of spatial formation to its most basic terms. Examples of these verbs are expand, inflate, nest, twist, lift, embed, merge and many more. The verbs are illustrated with threedimensional diagrams and pictures of designs which show the verbs ‘in action’.
‘Conditional Design’ is the sequel to ‘Operative Design’. This book will further explore the operative in design in a more detailed, intentional, and functional manner. In order to further understand these volumetric studies, it is imperative to give the volumes scale along with connection between volumes, if -applicable, and openings within the volumes. The conditions presented are not definitive, but are meant to serve as explorations of an iterative process.

Create with Artists
Art Is Everywhere
Rubbish Rocks! For, whoever has an eye for it, there is beauty in everything. The popularity of urban art, recycling, rubbish art, and the whole Make culture gave the idea for a book that both shows recent works by international artist who work with useless things and gives the reader step-by-step instructions to make their own art work in the spirit of the artists. The book features fifteen international artists who work with rubbish from various countries, showcases some of their projects, and has a DIY spread for a project by every artist.
The programme ‘Create with Artists’ offers the most inspiring workshops the Stedelijk Museum of contemporary art in Amsterdam has organized over the past decade. In response to their everincreasing popularity, the workshops have been transformed into this book. Now everyone can do these fun workshops. In this book they give us insights into their ways of looking at the world and the questions they ask themselves. The artists also share their personal tips and techniques.
This illustrated book aims to stimulate readers to observe the world as they have never seen it before by suggesting how ordinary things can be seen differently and how art, if made more accessible to everyone, can help us see things differently. The author triggers the reader to see the world with fresh eyes and to discover art in everyday things. The workshop that is part of this book can be applied very well in art education starting form secondary school level.

Visual Power Memory Game
Fake for Real Memory Game
The photographs on the playing cards of this game are picture montages sampled from images imprinted on our visual memory as icons of the mass culture in which we live. This surprising and contemporary version of the memory game is great fun to play and good for training people’s power to remember. It guarantees hours of amusement around the kitchen or dining room table.
The images of ‘Fake For Real Memory Game’ – both historical and contemporary – playfully visualise the classic theme of fake and real. The fun isn’t just in playing the memory game, but also in the surprising, slightly dissimilar images. Can you tell what is fake and what is real?

Brand Memory Game This game is all about knowledge of brands. Hendrik-Jan Grievink has made a selection of 30 internationally well-known brands, showing neither logo nor name on the images. The challenge is to find matching sets, based solely on their style elements and characteristic colours and a short description of the brand. Playing this game offers great fun and an excellent test of your brand knowledge. Concept: Hendrik-Jan Grievink | 2 x 30 cards in a box | 14,5 x 7,5 x 5 cm | £ 13.95 | ISBN 978 90 6369 262 9
You Are What You Eat Memory Game
Can You See What I See Memory Game
The Quick Brown Fox Jumps Over The Lazy Dog
Marije Vogelzang, author of the successful Eat Love book, adds a fantastic game to the BIS list of memory games; unsurprisingly, it is all about food. Marije Vogelzang selected food that has a specific and consistent effect on our body. The task is to correctly match a food to its effect on our body. Examples include cola and burping, garlic and bad breath and pepper and sneezing.
Everyday objects get a whole new meaning or come to life by adding small sketches to them. This is the principle for this new poetic and funny memory game. One card shows an everyday object and the matching card makes you look at the object in a different way because the artist added a little drawing.
This attractively finished typographic memory game includes 25 variations of the letter ‘A.’ Players attempt to find matching cards and the one who has most sets wins the game. Information about the letter is included on the card, and a separate folder provides a general history of typography.

London Memory Game
Play Van Abbe
‘London Memory Game’ is made up of 25 pairs of cards on typical London themes: Big Ben, shopping, London architecture, bridges, pubs, museums, greasy food, et cetera. Creatively visualised, it is an extra treat to play a game while getting to know the city better and from a new perspective. A folder that gives insight into the chosen subjects is included.
The Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven is famous for its experimental approach towards art’s role in society. Its collection includes key works by Lissitzky, Chagall and Picasso. It is no sur-prise that the museum welcomed the idea of creating a memory game. The sets have striking similarities in subject or technique, but are never by the same artist.
