Wim Crouwel: A Graphic Odyssey / Tony Brook & Adrian Shaughnessy
This catalogue of work by the Dutch graphic designer and typographer Wim Crouwel is structured around an interview by Tony Brook, which took place in December 2010 at Crouwel’s Amsterdam flat.
Besides a list of the works reproduced on its pages, the publication is otherwise fully given over to numerous full-color images of posters, sketches, typefaces, and other documents produced by Crouwel as a commercial artist. According to Brooks, “the qualities of his work are plain to see: the distinctive use of abstract typographic forms; the relentless experimentation with the grid; the ability of his work to communicate. He seems to have achieved the perfect balance.”
