In January 2009 he began a daily sketchbook diary to document his life and his observations of his adopted city, and published the results on his blog.
His new book, Alledaags, collects 333 of the drawings, covering everything from canal boats, hair gel and the madness of Queen’s Day to Vondelpark picnics, Zwarte Piet and blunt Dutch service. Both expats and genuine cloggies will find lots of familiar situations in this book which is full of genuine affection for Amsterdam.
Toby created a window for our Amsterdam store on Thursday July 1st. See him and his friends at work on twitter.
