Mathieu Lommen - Nederlandse Belettering

Publisher De Buitenkant

ISBN 9789490913830

Idea Code 18185

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.
