Since 2010, Wim Jansen has undertaken a search for the infographics created by Peter Alma, who is more widely known for his work as a painter and graphic designer. In the 1930s, Alma worked in Otto Neurath’s museum in Vienna, and also in its affiliates in Moscow and Kharkiv. Upon returning to the Netherlands, he started his own office and developed infographics for the city of Amsterdam, Schiphol Airport, and the Dutch Union of Government Workers, among others. The symbols were printed using linocuts, and of extremely high quality. They are collected in this publication for the first time, which includes 68 detached plates that can be spread out or hung on the wall.
