Today saw the arrival of Jurriaan Schrofer (1926-90) Restless Typographer the latest publication from Unit Editions.
This beautifully crafted book celebrates his work and preoccupation with experimental typography and letterforms.
Frederike Huygen, who has written an essay for the book, describes his work as ‘research into perception, visual effects and the optical illusion of perspective: or the interplay of letterform, pattern and meaning.’ She also refers to him as a ‘computer-designer before the computer’.
Schrofer worked at renowned design studio Total Design and was an outspoken figure within Dutch professional design organisations.
