In 1980 Herwolt van Doornen came up with a panel from the Willy Vandersteen Suske en Wiske book “Prinses Zagemeel” to be used as the new streetsign of the Lambiek Comic Shop and Gallery on Kerkstraat 72, Amsterdam.

It grew into the logo of the Lambiek emporium.

The idea to do the lettering in the form of a Vandersteen comic book album came from Job Goedhart. Lettering and color separations were done by Onno Docters van Leeuwen.
