A new, detailed monograph about Wim Crouwel: graphic designer and exhibition designer who defined the look of post war Holland with his studio Total Design. His modernism was reflected in countless posters and catalogues for the Stedelijk Museum, in stamps and experimental work. In the seventies Crouwel evoked a lot of criticism but nowadays he is seen as a cult figure and an inspiration for many.
The book is richly illustrated, the text focuses on his career and views, and places his work in context.
Frederike Huygen is an art- and design historian. She works as a freelance researcher and author, and is chairman of the Stichting Designgeschiedenis Nederland (Dutch foundation of design history).
