Wim Crouwel: A Graphic Odyssey – Catalogue, Cover No.2 (Unit 04) offers a comprehensive overview of the work of one of the most important and influential graphic designers of the modern era. Published to celebrate the major retrospective at the Design Museum in London, this book presents the work of a graphic titan. A pioneer of the new modernity, Crouwel’s early work anticipated the current computer era, and caught the sprit of early space age futurism. His programmatic approach to graphic design, his innovative use of grid systems, and his hunger for typographic experimentation, is as relevant today as it was when he first began working as a graphic designer in the 1950s. But this is not a usual formulaic design book: instead, Crouwel’s posters, catalogues, documents, manuals – even his stamps and personal photographs – are presented in the raw, bare-concrete setting of the Crouwel archive.
