About the Artist
For the exhibition 'Graphic Happiness, 100 years of dutch graphic design', we've designed a publication. This publication tells the story about a specific part of dutch design history. It's about one of the most famous dutch printers 'de Jong'. They were the first to work really close with designers like Wim Crouwel, Dick Bruna, Anthon Beeke and Otto Treuman. And did all kinds of experiments that are now considered as standard printing techniques.
The cover of the book is made out of 5 lose covers who together shape the logo of the printer, de Jong. The cover symbolizes the special collaboration between the printer and the designers, working together they made the best designs.
