On Friday June 7th, surrounded by faces both familiar and new—and stunning art prints—we revealed our newest title, ODE.

This book truly is a labor of love, nearly three years in the making. The thoughtfulness and attention poured into each page are palpable, and we thank Phillippe Vogelenzang and Vivian hoorn for trusting us on this joint adventure.

And Dove, for their generous support in the making of this title. As a brand, they’ve been challenging stereotypes and redefining perceptions of beauty.

We are also grateful for the incredible turnout during both pre-order and at the event. Thank you for your support and loving words.

A special thank you goes out to Perrier-Jouët, Roku Gin and San Pellegrino, for keeping our guests hydrated with delicious drinks. We also extend our gratitude to Roger Brunings PR for their services.
