Atlas of the New Dutch Water Defence Line

Award: Yellow Pencil

Yellow Pencil / Book Design / Entire Books / 2010

This atlas addresses the New Dutch Water Defence Line on a themed basis. The maps have been designed to give an understanding of all aspects of the defence line landscape: its position in the landscape, the forts, the inundation system, the geomorphology, the strategic system and recent developments. The line reveals itself as a many-tentacled military defensive system of forts, group shelters and polders that can be flooded at the threat of war. The atlas offers administrators something to lean on and designers a sense of freedom – a solid starting point for getting this unique national landscape literally back on the map.
