BOOM, Irma. Presént. By Niklas Maak. 8vo., bound in publisher's printed wrappers, preserved in the original neon green shrink wrap all in a new grey cloth folding box with a yellow label. Paris: Renault, 2016
Irma Boom succeeded in following up her magnificent 1996 Think Book with another tour de force of imaginative book design. She responded to the commission from Renault by producing a book printed on the thinnest of aluminum sheets in a variety of different colours, a process which created numerous technical challenges which she was able to overcome. The book was never available commercially, and is consequently rare.
