Store Bits: Mouse Mansion window, Wrapping Paper project & Typical Dutch postcards

Look what Mouse Mansion (Muizenhuis) author Karina Schaapman is making for our ABC Amsterdam window:

How cute is that?  Come see the finished result in Amsterdam from December 18th until January 8th, 2015!


As has by now become tradition, ABC Amsterdam will have colleagues wrapping your ABC-bought gifts outside the store in the last few days before Christmas.  This year, however, you can have your presents wrapped in one-off, specially-made gift wrapping paper by these wonderful local artists: Jip Piet, Mieke Fokkinga, Father Futureback, Els & Nel, Lennard Kok, and Hugo Rocci.

More information about (and samples of) this Wrapping Paper Project can be found on Subbacultcha!’s Facebook page and on their Tumblr page.


And finally, look at these wonderful new postcards!  They are part of the first series of ABC’s very own ‘Typical Dutch’ postcards, on sale now at both stores for EUR 1,-.  Photographed by Petra van Velzen and designed by Joke Mestdagh.  Click on each image to embiggen:
