Born in 1940 in Amsterdam, Anthon Beeke learned graphic design without any formal training. He was renowned for his provocative poster designs, which explored themes of love, sex, and violence, for numerous clients, including theatre groups such as Toneelgroep Amsterdam and the art fair KunstRAI.
This book presents an overview of roughly 350 posters from the Netherlands from the past two decades, selected by Beeke. A remarkable survey of the development of posters as a medium, it reflects the strong tradition of Dutch poster design, while Beeke’s keen, critical eye and personal touch give the collection added value. With essays by Frederike Huygen and Bob Witman.
