Statement And Counter-Statement / Experimental Jetset
The first publication on the work of Dutch power trio Experimental Jetset features almost two decades of graphic design praxis. Rather than a monolithic monograph, this book presents a loose, personal archive, with essays by Linda van Deursen, Mark Owens, and Ian Svenonius, plus two photographic chapters with a selection of work by the studio, covering both printed matter and the documentation of site-specific pieces and installations. A glossary-like anthology of texts (fragments of interviews, lectures, correspondence, etc.) previously written by Experimental Jetset—selected, edited, and structured by Jon Sueda—concludes the volume.
This edition is accompanied by Automatically Arranged Alphabets (Roma 249), a zine with a screenprinted silver cardboard cover which contains a selection of typographic experiments involving software-generated compositions, part of a series of sketches made between 2014-2015.
Experimental Jetset is a small, independent, Amsterdam-based graphic design studio, founded in 1997 by (and still consisting of) Marieke Stolk, Erwin Brinkers and Danny van den Dungen.
