Abstract

264 are not peculiar to Flanders: similar developments are taking place everywhere else. More remarkable is the proliferation of private presses and single-handed publishing enterprises whose low overheads enable them to operate with a fair degree of success producing small runs for the discriminating few. Though many will succumb to economic pressures, it is from their ranks that new entrepreneurial talent will ultimately spring. Flemish fine book production has faced greater obstacles in the past.

Think of the name Rotterdam and one does not immediately associate it with a city of any particular bookish significance. Rotterdam the great port, Rotterdam the great centre of international trade and industry - tall right. But Rotterdam the city of books? Rotterdam the bibliopolis?
