The Dikke Van Dale is the oldest and with nearly 5000 pages the most extensive dictionary of the Dutch language. The 15th edition required serious reinterpretation of the existing format. To improve the dictionary’s functionality navigational elements like colour, symbols and illustrations were introduced. The pearly white cover presents a major break with the familiar dark hues traditionally used by the publisher. This signals the current association between the pursuit of knowledge and our use of white and silver digital devices as the portals to information.
