Graphic design student Elina Birkehag and Graphic design alumnus Elisabeth Rafstedt are nominated for The Best Dutch Book Designs with the book 'Vergeet de meisje' of Alma Matthijsen

A panel of professional judges made a selection out of the 342 submissions. 33 books distinguished themselves conspicuously by their editorial choices, graphic design, treatment of images and text, choice of material and technical workmanship. 

The panel consists this year of designers Yolanda Huntelaar and Michaël Snitker, Freek Kuin (creative director Robstolk printers), Marije Sietsma (CEO Publisher Loopvis) and Suzanne Bogman (Head of Publications Van Gogh Museum Amsterdam).
