The famous collector of collections

Remember the lamp I made from sunglasses…?


It’s featured as one of the many artworks of Pets Marktplaats in the book of the same name, and this book (…drumroll…) made it to the Longlist Dutch Doc Award, the biggest award for documentary photography!


So proud of Mr. P van de Luijtgaarden and his many collections!


You can buy the book here: http://www.dejongehond.nl/NL/shop/0/0/1/15180. It’s quite the object: 160 Folded posters, bound together with a rubber strap.


A touching documentary on Pet van de Luijtgaarden:

The Green Whisk (cookbook)

Just a couple more weeks and the cookbook my illustrations are featured in will be launched.

Last week I had a first peek at the names of the writers and was hugely impressed by being in such good company. Can’t wait to try out the recipes!
