From the Publisher. Jurriaan Schrofer was a Dutch graphic designer and an outspoken figure within Dutch professional design organizations. But most of all, he was an experimentalist in letterforms and typography. This book celebrates Schrofer’s typography. In an essay, the design writer Frederike Huygen describes his work as "research into perception, visual effects and the optical illusion of perspective: or the interplay of letterform, pattern and meaning." Schrofer called himself a tinkerer—a "bricoleur." His energy, inventiveness and ceaseless quest for new modes of visual expression made him the quintessential Dutch graphic designer: or to put it another way, a restless typographer.
