The book is here - Melkweg 50 lightyears

"In honor of our golden anniversary, our sparkling new book, Milky Way 50 Light Years, will be published soon. It is not a dusty history book, but a voyage of discovery through our archive, full of colorful stories and images about themes that have defined the face of the Milky Way for five decades. From the international women's festival in the 1970s, the punks and the rise of hip-hop in the 1980s, to subjects such as free space, dance and cinema.

With the sharp pen of Alexander Hiskemuller, Aron Friedman, David Kleijwegt, Fenne Saedt, Madeleijn van den Nieuwenhuizen and Saul van Stapele, among others. Complemented by talented image makers and interviews with our visitors, it promises to be a particularly beautiful book, in a Dutch and an English edition. The publication is designed by design agency Van Lennep and the final editing is in the hands of Mark van Schaick."

This package is available in a limited edition of only 25 pieces! Order your book in combination with an exclusive t-shirt from the unique Melkweg Expo 'Starring You'. For this exhibition, we invited photographers to create new work starring the Milky Way Visitor, to get a glimpse of who they are. A number of portraits from the series have also been placed in the book. We only have one t-shirt per size and photo printed, which t-shirt you will receive at home remains a surprise! Delivery Note: this is a pre-order. The book is expected to be published in February 2021. We will send the book to you as soon as it comes from the printer. Additional items will be shipped together with the delivery of your copy.
