A WALK, WITH ARTIST JAN ROTHUIZEN

Jan drew (and wrote) The Soft Atlas of Amsterdam: Hand Drawn Perspectives from Daily Life (2014) – as interviewer Jacob Wallett describes “is a sensitive, playful and detailed account of daily life as encountered in a number of places around the city. The book includes maps of districts, streets, bedrooms, even the air traffic control room at Schiphol airport. Amsterdam’s reputation is a unique mixture: Equally famous for tech innovation, legal prostitution and its UNESCO-protected waterways. The picturesque streets that meander in long curves along the edges of canals form a deceptively continuous substratum for wildly diverse activities.”
