The Printing Office presents a cult of typography and lettering: Dutch Type. First published in 2004 by Jan Middendorp for 010 Publishers, it sold out within a short time. Today, thanks to a crowdfunding campaign, the volume sees the light again in a reprint by Druk Editions.
Dutch Type is a compendium of Dutch type design that reviews its illustrious history: from its origins, traceable in the calligraphers of the 15th century, to contemporary digital type design, to which almost half of the book is dedicated, enriched by numerous examples and typeface studies.
The result of extensive research, the volume collects and documents the creation of Dutch letters and typefaces in 320 pages. It is appreciated for its ability to combine rigorous historical-typographical analysis and extremely refined colour illustrations, provoking the pleasure that only typefaces can convey.
Dutch Type is a must-have volume for students, professionals and lovers of typography, calligraphy and lettering.
