Fifty years ago I fell off my bike when I saw the poster that Nicolaas Wijnberg made for the show Dantons Dood. When I clambered to my feet, I knew what I wanted in life: to make posters. That moment led to this book. As there was no sequel to the standard work The History of the Dutch Posters 1890-1960by Pieter Brattinga and Dick Dooijes I decided to make my own: Dutch Posters 1960-1996. A selection by Anthon Beeke(1996). Every poster has the mentality: ‘I am a poster, I stand for something!’
