|Emigre (Exhibition Catalog)
Edited and designed by Emigre; published by Drukkerij Rosbeek bv.
In February 1998 Emigre received the Charles Nypels Award, an award which is assigned once every two years to an individual or institution that has made significant innovations in the area of typography. On the occasion of this event an exhibition of the work of Emigre was held at the Jan van Eyck Academy in Maastricht, Holland, and an accompanying catalog was published and printed by Drukkerij Rosbeek bv.
For those who found the theory published in Emigre magazine a bit overwhelming at times, or for those who simply didn't have the time to read it all, this catalog offers a "sound bite" version of all those brainy ponderings that go right to the heart of design discourse of the past 10 years featuring quotes from issues 2-50.
The catalog, which was designed and compiled by Emigre, also features essays by Rick Poynor and Lorraine Wild with samples of Emigre's layouts and typefaces.
72 Pages, 7.75 x 7.75 inches, softcover with flaps, perfect bound.
