The designer monograph is too often an unambitious genre that doesn’t set out to do any more than enshrine and celebrate its subject. This book about the French designer Pierre Bernard, co-founder of Grapus, shows what can happen when the writer has a clearly developed critical point of view. Hugues Boekraad, its Dutch author, is one of the most insightful critics of graphic design in the field today—his writing deserves to be better known outside the Netherlands. Unusually for a designer monograph, the pages are designed to be read with ease.
