After moving to the Netherlands, author Amit Biswas (Dhaka, Bangladesh, 1987) became fascinated by the new logo of his new hometown Eindhoven. It inspired him to collect information about all logos of all municipalities in the Netherlands, which turned out to be no small task since the required information was not easily available in all municipalities. He has invested more than four years in researching and collecting all the beautiful stories of the municipalities.
Logo Land tells the underlying story of the municipal logos of the Netherlands. There are 352 unique municipalities in the Netherlands. Each municipality has its own logo. A logo is more than just a photo or a slogan. A logo tells the story of what makes a municipality unique through a combination of logos and words. Every municipality is unique and so is every story behind every logo. This book offers a unique combination of insight into Dutch logo design and unknown stories about our country. Book lovers can travel through the past and present of the Netherlands and get to know all the hidden stories about this country through the logo and corporate identity.
For the first time in Dutch history, Logo Land looks behind the interesting story of all logos. Biswas describes the logos of all Dutch municipalities. A unique book!
With a foreword by Jan van Zanen (chairman of the association of Dutch municipalities) and Peter Kentie (director of Eindhoven365).
