NAi Publishers in cooperation with Werkplaats Typografie, Arnhem

In Alphabetical OrderThis is a schizophrenic book.
All rolled into one, it is
- a book about typography and graphic design, arranged around recent work from a single source and incubator, the Werkplaats Typografie (Typography Workshop) in Arnhem
- a book about a specific approach and pedagogy. It researches the methods that the Werkplaats Typografie uses to study and practise graphic design, and how students can integrate all aspects of the discipline and its forms in their own expressive vocabulary
- a book that presents a broad selection of work from a 'school-in-progress', the Werkplaats Typografie, along with texts that articulate the common foundations and ideas.

The Werkplaats Typografie in Arnhem was set up five years ago as a post-graduate course in graphic design. As well as offering training, the Werkplaats is a studio where professional commissions are executed for an extremely varied clientele. Karel Martens and Wigger Bierma are the founding directors of Werkplaats Typografie, and Armand Mevis recently joined them. In addition, various visiting lecturers are brought in to supervise and advise the students who study and work here. The Werkplaats participants work independently on a broad range of projects, including the design of books, posters, websites and exhibitions.

The book shows a selection of the work in thematic pages of images, such as posters, CD's, books and postcards. Six highly distinctive authors describe the studio's philosophies on typography and graphic design as well as the Werkplaats Typografie's intentions and methods.
