A book about Wim Crouwel's fonts and typographic posters/cards. All text in his own Gridnik typeface. His typefaces are constructed on very logic and rational grounds but still have a strong personality and human dimension, they are more than just experimental. It would certainly be nice to see more about his work. (There are some interesting interviews with Wim Crouwel on You tube)

Wim Crouwel... relatively unknown??!!

Maybe to someone living under a rock or quite frankly, someone who doesn't know anything about design.

Wim Crouwel is arguably the most influential Dutch designer of all time!!

this book is a very interesting look at a relatively unknown typeface designer. he starts out using traditional fonts (akzidenz, Helvetica) and now creates fonts based on matrices and pixels. beyond that, his interview explains why he did things the way he did.
a great book for anybody interested in typefaces and typographic layouts. the book layout is itself a little weird (strange margin sixes...) but overall is very clean and very effective.

I would not call Wim Crouwel little-known. He gets talked about and lauded quite a bit. He has even been called one of the most influencial designers of this century.

It's hard to believe he was doing the stuff he was doing years ago.
