Oh, I am so excited that the Maria Sibylla Merian exhibit is at the Rembrant Museum! I've been wanting to see it and didn't realize it would be there. Too bad we won't be there at the same time, but hope you are having an excellent visit. Your pictures are fabulous :) That shoe poster...love it!

Jill - yes, the Merian show runs until May 18. I couldn't see it, much to my disappointment. I hope you enjoy it!

Mary-Laure said...

Wow, seems like pretty much everyone love the clogs and the poster for the Maria Sibylla Merian show...!
They're my favorites too.

for me it has to be 'dear anne' - probably more for what i imagine the content to be, rather than from the graphic design point of view. Now I'm going to look out for that poster and see what it is actually all about!

PS where is the magician poster?! :-)

Pia - I loved the Anne Frank poster too. It was wonderful to see her face all over Amsterdam on this poster. The sober, retro design is nice, too.

As for the Hans Klok poster... ha ha ha, it was really too ridiculous (but funny!) to appear next to Anne Frank or Maria Sibylla Merian!
