Illustrated Field Guide to Amsterdam Noord

The Illustrated Field Guide to Amsterdam Noord is a travel guide, notebook and address book all in one. It guides you through the northern part of Amsterdam using illustrations and stories, and provides plenty of room to add your own observations, favourite hang outs, and secret hidding places.
With the field guide you can discover everything the other side of the IJ has to offer- use it to wander around, meet the locals, and write down thoughts.

The field guide was created to urge new residents and visitors to explore the northern side of the city and see and document its unique character before the inevitable process of gentrification changes the latter. It started as a passion project and was brought to life through a succesful crowdfunding campaign and with the invaluable support of local residents and the wonderful folk at With the field guide, I hope to instil a sense of pride and belonging in the new residents of Noord.
