From the Publisher. Upon its publication in 1996, Printed Matter became an instant classic in the world of design publishing. This beautifully designed visual survey of the career of Dutch graphic designer Karel Martens is a tactile distillation of Martens’s unique and personal approach to design. Projects—ranging from postage stamps to books to signs on buildings—are arranged in layouts that fully explore the print process. The first edition of Printed Matter quickly sold out along with a second edition published in 2001, and both have become valuable collectors' items. This third and final edition includes a new interview with Martens and brings the survey of his work to 2010, marking 50 years of practice.
