For the now postponed visit of queen Beatrix of the Netherlands to Oman this march, Reinildis Ditzhuyzen wrote the “Oman Ditz”. A dutch book about Arabic manners and morals. The book functions also as a forerunner of the “Arabische Ditz” a much more elaborated book about Arabic manners and morals. More information: akribeia.nl/bibliografie.html The budget was tight but i had a great time designing it.
14 luxury boxes were made by www.maquetteatelier.nl for the Queen and Prince and amongst others. The people who helped realise this project also deceived the box. The box is made out of 2,3 mm plywood and meranti. The font in use is Geotica (slightly modified) and is lasered out of walnut veneer. The Pattern on the plywood is lasered in too and took 3 hours a box.
