Word of Image / Max Kisman
Compiled and edited by Dutch graphic designer and illustrator Max Kisman, Word of Image highlights the many aspects of graphic design approaches and principles found in Dutch design, and not necessarily through the most obvious examples. Essays by Max Bruinsma, Frans Oosterhof, Jan Middendorp and Gert Staal elaborate upon an underlying theme: metaphorical thinking and the language of imagination. This volume gives a selection of thoughts, visions and impressions by 26 Dutch and American artists, typeface designers, and graphic designers. Also includes “Dutch Doubles,” an alphabet with designs by thirty-seven Dutch designers.
