For the International Poster Festival Chaumont, France 2005 the Werkplaats Typografie was invited to represent dutch graphic design in the form of a graphic design exhibition. The Werkplaats proposed to temporarily move the school to Chaumont, France and while there work on the exhibition catalogue for 6 weeks. The students chose 11 dutch graphic designers to work with, with ideologies that coincided with those of the school. The Chaumont International pre-catalogue announced the project with mock book covers by each student representing their chosen designer. Irma Boom and I decided to produce a manifesto about her working methods rather than simply showing her work. This cover is a reflection of that initial idea.
