Karel Martens: Small Prints
This publication by renowned Dutch graphic designer Karel Martens contains a collection of previously unpublished monoprints, made between 2014 and 2022. The prints, which are both highly geometric and brightly colored, are reproduced in the book at their actual size. Images are printed with fluorescent ink to match the original works Martens created. Textual elements accent the various abstract shapes and repetitions on almost every page.
The book comes with two different covers, the result of an experiment with multi-layered offset printing, where all the content of the book was printed in three layers on a single print sheet, which was then cut and folded into two alternate leporello covers.
