Among peculiar events taking place in Frankfurt nowadays it may be important to pay your attention to Frankfurt Book Fair 2015.  Do you wonder what this fair stands for and why talented designer Marcel Wanders chose this book exhibition to present the book to the society? The CovetED Magazine is here to help you know more about this issue. The fair works like a meeting place for the industry’s experts and the most important marketplace for books, media, rights and licences worldwide. Each year in October the publishers, booksellers, agents, film producers or authors come together and create something new in Frankfurt.


Two weeks before Marcel Wanders has presented Rijks, Masters of the Golden Age at the Frankfurt Book Fair 2015. The publication pays homage to the 17th-century Dutch masterpieces from the Rijksmuseum’s prestigious Gallery of Honour. Three years in the making, the project was born of Marcel Wanders’ profound appreciation for this outstanding cultural heritage and its timeless significance.



“This book is about how the greatest masterpieces influence how we see the world today.” Marcel Wanders.


The book Masters of the Golden Age brings the readers eye to eye with over 60 iconic paintings such as Rembrandt’s Nightwatchand Vermeer’s Milkmaid. Each piece is experienced up close with the most surprising detail, as the finest printing techniques and thoughtful perspectives transport these paintings from a different age and vividly bring them to life.



Leading contemporary critical thinkers from the worlds of philosophy, art, film, food, trend, business and design explain how their perception of the world has been influenced by these paintings with each of the 28 renowned experts focusing on an individual artwork. Featuring writings of Ferran Adrià, David Allen, Alain de Botton, Anton Corbijn, Angela Missoni, Jimmy Nelson, Erwin Olaf and many more, the testimonies add a new way of seeing not only these masterpieces, but also life itself.
The book itself sets a new benchmark for art books with its materials, production techniques and contemporary writings. Lavishly produced in genuine leather, beautiful hand-written calligraphy, and the finest printing technique and paper. There are three editions of the book.coveted-Latest-art-publication-of-Marcel-Wanders-fair
