Amsterdam University library is a great place. I first came there to do my revival research and now we came there with the whole group, Peter Verheul and Françoise Berserik.
Mathieu Lommen met us there and gave a nice overview, showing masterpieces. Sketches made by the hand of Bram de Does, Jan van Krimpen, huge calligraphy collection, writing and engravings. Archive is constantly updated. You can find every book made by Irma Boom there and her books’ original tiny prototypes as well.
Here is a list of the stuff that we saw for those who will go there by themselves.
