20 jaar / years 010
In April 2003 010 Publishers has been active for twenty years. During those two decades we have published five hundred books on architecture and design. This specialization reflects the enthusiasm of 010 's founders, Hans Oldewarris and Peter de Winter, trained as an architect and an urban designer respectively at Delft University of Technology. Besides hundred monographs by and about Dutch architects, with Rem Koolhaas's S,M,L,XL as a provisional peak, 010 have published books on the most wide-ranging architecture, interior design, photography, industrial design, graphic design and the visual arts. These aspects include a keen interest in the theory and history of architecture and design. The lion's share of this book is taken up with a catalogue spanning the period 1983-2003. Exhaustively annotated and illustrated, it gives not just the technical details of each book such as size, format, and binding style but also the authors, editors, photographers, graphic designers and printers. A brief description of the contents rounds off each entry. Comprehensive indexes give insight into who contributed to which book and in what way. In their introductory essay Ed Taverne and Cor Wagenaar give a picture of the practice of architectural publishing in the Netherlands during those years.
