This extraordinary book describes the one hundred year history of the SHV (Steenkolen HandelsVereniging), the company of the family Fenterer van Vlissingen. The oldest sources are mentioned in the back of the book. Chairman Paul van Vlissingen also wanted to make history himself by publishing the most prestigious book ever. The print run is only 4,000 copies and was exclusively presented to business relations. It was never offered for sale.
The book contains a lot of graphical highlights by designer Irma Boom. She received multiple international prizes for the work.
Art historian Johan Pijnappel immersed himself into the family Van Vlissingen with the help of the 100 year archives and made an exceptionally fascinating historical overview. This makes the book not only interesting for graphic artists, though also for those interested in very successful family companies.
Making the book took five years. Printing it took three months.
