Best thesis cover

The winner of the prize for the best PhD thesis cover, Joris Sprakel, received a print from illustrator Henk van Ruitenbeek on Tuesday 29 December.

Sprakel's thesis, which the jury pronounced the best of 2009, was about paint. Van Ruitenbeek's picture reflected the themes of both the thesis and the competition: he showed Sprakel designing himself. The prizewinner will take the picture back to Harvard, where he now works.
