About: Cover letter: ”Dear reader, We are pleased to offer you a copy of the seventh volume in our series of documentaries, which - edited by Wim Crouwel - highlights the various aspects of printing and the printing trade. The subject and content of this publication is devoted to the role and use of the means of transmission, including graphics, in the work of the Museum of Modern Art. The authors invited for this publication present a vision from practice: Jean Leering, as a museum man, and Jan van Toorn, as a designer, worked together for the Van Abbemuseum in Eindhoven from ca.1965 to the end of 1973 and then for another two years. in front of the Tropenmuseum in Amsterdam. The preparation of this publication has become for themselves a kind of theoretical justification for their position, which grew slowly but surely in the practice of their collaboration. That is why they opted for the publication in the form of a dialogue."
