Regular price $ 10.00

On view May-June 1988
This exhibition presented the work of the typographer and book designer Willem Sandberg (1897-1984). The outstanding characteristic of Sandberg’s design is its vitality. Time has not diminished its impact; we now see more clearly his inventiveness and variety. Sandberg delighted in playing off the severe shapes of type against collage, torn paper and objets trouve. His pamphlets books, catalogs and posters combine colors, languages and typefaces in a dazzling display of imagination. Illustrated, 32 pp.
