An exhibition of Vlerk's work was cancelled at the Graphical Museum Groningen. Fortunately, there is an overview book available with images of more than 200 posters, also in an English edition.
For more than thirty years, Vlerk has designed posters for bands that performed in Groningen. He was the driving force behind the Groninger Underground Comic Magazine GR'NN, which was created as a stage for drawing talent from the north.
Sherpa Publishers has made another beautiful book, which includes a wonderful screen print, in a limited numbered edition. Too bad it's a small edition, because Vlerk's work deserves a larger audience.
