Yesterday the Dutch ›Centraal Museum‹ published a book called ›Blue Jeans‹. This denim publication was put into print to support the museum's internationally admired ›Blue Jeans‹ exhibition.
Across various themes, the exhibition shows the history of 350 years jeans. It presents contemporary denim interpretations and unique historical products such as indigo kimono’s from Japan. On top of that it shows the way jeans evolved in fashion photography by artists like Richard Avedon and the exhibition is showcasing the history, craftsmanship as well as innovative technology in denim design. Amongst many other jeans artefacts the museum naturally presents a wide selection of the most extraordinary jeans around.
This ›Blue Jeans‹ publication consists of 4 essays: Design Jeans, Amekaji (Americana & Japan), Green Jeans and Dutch Jeans. Next to that the book consists of a Denim Dictionary in collaboration with Tenue de Nîmes. In ›Denim Heads‹ the museum portraits a variety of denim aficionado's accompanied by their favourite pair of blue.
The ›Blue Jeans‹ book is designed by Joachim Baan and is available for wholesale as from today. Note: The English edition of the book is published in limited quantities. This first edition is available for a wholesale price of €15,00. The suggested retail price is €25,-
