About: 'Design and Printing - About printed matter as a quality product, Wim Crouwel’. "Graphic design has been in a bind for as long as the printing profession has been mechanised. From the moment that the sum of the personal actions was converted into a continuous movement, a haste arose, which means that good printed matter was hindered. In connection with printed matter, I will deliberately not talk about concepts such as 'beautiful' or ugly' because, certainly in this day and age, such terms can only be used from a personal point of view. More objective standards have to be applied for a mass medium such as printed matter in general."
Very good condition; light shelf ware consistent with age. Interior clean with exception of small pencil inscription on first page. Please contact me should you have any further questions about condition.
