Renault=Present was launched in 2016 by Renault. The book is completely printed on very thin aluminium and in monochrome colours, just like a car. German journalist Niklas Maak wrote the stories and Dutch designer Irma Boom designed the book at the special request of Laurens van den Acker. Both Niklas and Irma have beautiful memories (from their youth) of the brand Renault. Irma Boom was especially enthousiastic when she heard that the Renault logo was designed by artist Victor Vasarely. She says that the logo is an excellent example of both the own style of the artist and the style of Renault. In 1972, Vasarely was charged to design the new Renault logo, which was first used on the Renault 5. The images of Vasarely are discussed in detail in the book. The book was never available in the bookstore, therefore very exclusive.
