The book of DAE graduate Tim Enthoven ‘Binnenkamers’ is rewarded for the best illustrated and most prestigious book of the year. Tim has drawn, illustrated and designed the winning book for his graduation at Design Academy Eindhoven in 2010. At the time he graduated cum laude and won the Rene Smeets Prize for the best graduation project of the year.

Binnenkamers’, which means indoors, was selected with 29 other books. The Municipal Museum Amsterdam will exhibit all thirty selected books at the end of this year. The prize ‘Best Illustrated Book of the Year’, which is better known as Plantin-Moretusprize before 2010, is initiated by the Flemish Publishers Association, in cooperation with Boek.be, the Design museum and Plantijn college. The category Strips and Graphic novels exists since 2011. The jury, chaired by Jan Hoet, rewarded for the first time a book in this new category.

‘Binnenkamers’ is published by Bries in Antwerpen. The book tells the story about Tim’s life. His life hardly extends beyond his room. Its four walls form the boundaries within which he tries to create as much of a perspective as he can. Anything that could throw him off his routine, he renounces. But will he be able to live with the things he has left? In the 96-page graphic novel Binnenskamers Tim Enthoven leaves all conventions in comic books or novels behind him to create a touching, surrealistic book about the life of a frightened boy in his own liberated imagery.

Tim Enthoven will exhibit soon in MU with 'The Tiny Tim', the early years of Tim Enthoven 1994 till 2003. This exhibition is from May 25 till July 22 2012.
