flyer’dam

Rotterdam flyerculture from the 80′s till now  

Flyers are a phenomenon, which have certainly been part of our culture for the last twenty years or so. They have become invaluable in telling the story of our youth and their cultures.

This book wants to expose the sound and beat of Rotterdam. And not by presenting photographs of bands or the crowd or the interior of some random club, but by flyers of those particular club nights. They tell us a story of design, love of form, the transient processes, trends and imagery of certain times. All aspects of nighttime youth culture and the nights themselves will be taken under consideration. Flyers will tell a story without words, they are part of something bigger. (The La Rivière Tapes – flyer’dam)

flyer’dam is out there in the shops like Donner, Shopper, Peek a Boo, v/h Van Gennep and more to be announced soon. Or get it online here! More info (also in English)?
