BOOK: "This Is Where You Can Find Me - Illustrated Sentiments on Rotterdam"
Rachel Sender invites fourteen Rotterdam-based illustrators to take us on an unconventional journey through the city’s most popular and overlooked areas, resulting in a collection of colourful illustrated personal stories. Be it commentary on the burgeoning gentrification of neighbourhoods, nostalgic yearnings or a poetic declaration of love for Rotterdam’s surrounding green spaces, the illustrators’ idiosyncratic creations for this book pay homage to the city while touching on the power of illustration to bring communities together through evocative imagery and compelling storytelling.
