Mathieu Lommen - Nederlandse Belettering
Printed model books were indispensable in the classroom, workshop, and studio until well into the 20th century. Model books for lettering form a special group within this, but these often simplistic publications seldom appear in archives or institutions such as libraries. But a new generation of letterers and calligraphers is collecting them and enthusiastically sharing images on social media. Such publications have once again become a source of inspiration. Compiled by Mathieu Lommen, curator and teacher of graphic design history at the University of Amsterdam, this richly illustrated publication deals with the unjustly forgotten 20th-century model books for lettering from the Netherlands.
