Rare first edition, signed by Ed Van Der Elsken!

“Eye Love You. Mensenboek, vrouwen-, mannenboek, libido-, sex-, liefdes-, vriendschapsboek. Boek van geluk, verdriet, lijden, dood, strijd, moed, vitaliteit. door: Ed van der Elsken”
“Eye Love You. People book, women’s-, men’s book, libido, sex- , of love-, friendship book. Book of happiness, sadness, suffering, death, struggle, courage, vitality. yours: Ed van der Elsken”

Eduard “Ed” van der Elsken (10 March 1925 – 28 December 1990) was a renowned Dutch photographer and filmmaker. His imagery provides quotidian, intimate and autobiographic perspectives on the European zeitgeist, spanning the period of the Second World War into the 1970’s in the realms of love, sex, art, music (particularly jazz), and alternative culture.
The life of photographer, filmmaker, artist and world traveler Ed van der Elsken was connected intimately with his work. He did not hide behind the camera, but used it to get in touch with the people he preferred to photograph: eccentric characters in the large metropolises, often belonging to the lower strata of society.

True first edition copy (with cloth-spine) of this, his first full-colour photo book, “Eye Love You” was published by Van Holkema & Warendorf, Bussum, in 1977 and features page after page of van der Elsken’s colourful, intimate and often confrontational photography and texts from all over the world. Like a travelogue of his encounters across Africa, India, Paris, Amsterdam, etc. in protest, famine, ritual, commune, celebration, mourning, and all in-between, it encompasses exactly what van der Elsken’s inscription inside states, “Book of happiness, sadness, suffering, death, struggle, courage, vitality”.
A truly special photo book from the 1970’s.

This copy is signed by Ed Van Der Elsken himself.

Wim Crouwel
Modernist


A new, detailed monograph about Wim Crouwel: graphic designer and exhibition designer who defined the look of post war Holland with his studio Total Design. His modernism was reflected in countless posters and catalogues for the Stedelijk Museum, in stamps and experimental work like a sensational computer alphabet. In the seventies Crouwel evoked a lot of criticism but nowadays he is seen as a cult figure and an inspiration for many.

The heavy book is profusely illustrated and shows a great deal of Crouwel’s influential and beautiful work. Texts in English throughout, by Frederike Huygen, highlight Crouwel’s career and his views, providing informative background to his work and placing him in a critical context. Frederike Huygen is an art and design historian and has written numerous publications on design. Huygen works as a freelance researcher and author, and is president of the Foundation Design History Netherlands.

A must for any fan of Wim Crouwel’s work.
