The Visual Legacy Foundation, founded in 2006, aims to promote awareness and protection of world cultural heritage by means of illustrated books and other visual media.
In 2007 the foundation published A RESISTIBLE FORCE (DONKERE PALISSADEN in its Dutch edition) about a system of age-old breakwaters on the south-western coast of the Netherlands. Partially due to the attention this book drew to the breakwaters, the Province of Zeeland decided to add the site to its list of protected cultural heritage. The book was awarded the 2008 Zeeland Book Prize. More.
In 2018 Visual Legacy will publish LIVING IRON (LEVEND IJZER) by Pauline van Lynden and Vanessa Everts, about the life cycle of iron and man's life with iron and steel. More.
The Visual Legacy Foundation is registered with the Dutch Chamber of Commerce, company number 30219388.
