Maastricht Gids Voor De Zintuigen



A research project on senses as an alternative view on the Dutch city Maastricht makes this publication already interesting as a concept. The concept of showing things from a more subjective side is certainly reflected in the book design. It invites the reader to look at and visit unusual locations to discover the city in a new way by diving into the details of certain buildings and public spaces. The cover, a silky surface with glossy relief lines, immediately intrigues our sense of touch. On the inside, the choice of paper and line structure of the layout evoke the idea of a magazine, reconfirming this unusual approach to a city guide. The grid of the interior is extended to the cover. Images do not show a full overview but are mainly zooming in on unusual or common elements. The choice of layout, which has the characteristics of a personal journal, makes Maastricht the journal’s central character and provides an intimate and even subjective experience. The feeling of personal stories concerns all aspects of the city, which go beyond the obvious, from “exhaust gases” to “best bought perfumes” or “the cheapest restaurant around the corner”.
